Fitness

Focus: Cardio

Warmup, then (2 ROUNDS):

10x Burpee, 10x Squat Jumps, 100x Mountain Climbers

(30 seconds rest after 1 full round then repeat circuit) 

 

Burpee

Lower into a plank position before dropping into a push-up. Drive through your hands and use your core to push strongly back up before jumping your feet in just outside your hands then springing away from the floor. If you need to modify you can lower to your knees for the push-up. 

Squat Jumps

Starting with feet just outside your hips and toes turned out, quickly drop into a squat position before driving away from the floor. Use your arms to help pull you up higher and land with bent knees.

 

Mountain Climbers

Mountain Climber: Start in a strong plank position with your body weight forward over your hands, your core locked in tight and your back in a long flat position. One at a time drive your knees into your chest. To get the most out of this move, be sure to keep your hips down and go for speed.

 

Nutrition

How do your Sakara meals go from being beautiful medleys of plant ingredients to usable energy that fuels your workouts and other daily activities?

The answer lies in your mitochondria. They are the powerhouses of your cells that work to break down food and oxygen and turn it into ATP, which is your body’s energy source. Your mitochondria are responsible for creating 90% of the energy your body needs to support life. Healthy mitochondria also slow down the aging process and keep your muscles lean, your energy levels high and your metabolism fired up. So obviously, you want to maintain them, and one of the best ways to do that is through your diet—specifically, by eating plenty of plant foods that are rich in sulfur.

Load up on cruciferous veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, kale and Brussels sprouts, as well as alliums like onions and garlic, to get your sulfur fix (and avoid sugary, processed foods and gluten, which can damage mitochondria and cause inflammation and free radical buildup in the body). Not only will you have more energy and a leaner body, but your hair will be shiny, your nails strong and your skin glowing, since sulfur supports connective tissues like collagen and keratin. 

 

Light Work

Time to reflect on your Light Work challenge for the week. How did it go? How did it make you feel? If you haven’t done it yet, then your mission this weekend is to smile, say hi and maybe even give out a few hugs.
