Alright, here we go for week 2 of the challenge!
Your extra credit this week is YOGA.
You can take a class or just do some yoga at home - there are always videos online, or you can go from a good book with sequences. I really like Slim Calm Sexy Yoga. It's in lay-person terms which make it really easy to understand and follow. Plus most of the sequences can be done by anyone and take about 5 minutes each.
Today let's focus on those quads and IT bands! I've done a fair amount of squatting this week and I really need to loosen up.
Here's some good IT band work from (my favorite) Mobility WOD!
And here's a look at using the VooDoo bands to help with knee pain from overworked/tight quads.
My husband has the VooDoo bands and really likes them - he does about 30-60 minutes of mobility per day. (Yes, he's a beast.)
Let me know how the challenge is going for you! It's not to late to join in. Let me know how you did getting your 15 minutes a day in the first week!
