Fitness

Focus: Cardio

Warmup, then (3 ROUNDS):

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

(30 seconds rest after 1 full round then repeat) 

 

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.

Inflammation, Explained

Inflammation is one of the top wellness buzzwords, but what does it actually mean?

There are two kinds of inflammation: acute and chronic. Acute inflammation works like this: When you bump into a desk corner or complete a tough workout, your body attempts to heal itself with proteins called cytokines, which go straight to the source of the action. Next, your arteries dilate, blood flow increases and hormones work alongside your white blood cells to heal the damaged tissue. The discomfort you feel indicates the healing process. If you’ve got a scrape or bruise, these reactions subside after a few days and your body is on to the next.

Chronic inflammation is caused by habitual wear and tear from factors like environmental pollution, a poor diet (with lots of gluten, sugar and artificial/processed foods) stress, lack of exercise and excessive alcohol consumption. This means your white blood cells turn on their sirens to begin the healing process even in the case of a non-emergency, but with nowhere to go and nothing to do, they eventually start to attack the organs, or necessary tissues and cells.

If your body is always on the defensive, your risk of all sorts of health problems, like diabetes, autoimmune disorders, arthritis, cancer, allergies, asthma, Crohn’s disease, PCOS, and depression, increases. So how can you treat chronic inflammation? A clean diet makes a huge difference. Your Sakara meals are crafted with plenty of hydrating, colorful organic produce, leafy greens, plant fiber, healthy fats and anti-inflammatory herbs and spices, to help heal chronic inflammation and lower your risk of health issues.

 

Light Work

Time to reflect on your Light Work 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 find an opportunity to stand a little taller and speak a little louder.
