Sweat The Style X SoulCycle

SweattheStyle_SoulCycle_3SweatTheStyle_SoulCycle_9SweatTheStyle_SoulCycle_6SoulCycle is a Sweat The Style favorite workout. The combination of spin class, night club, and motivational conference motivates the sweat. Music blasts and lights flash as you go on your ride. The specialized instructors guide you with positive reinforcement and encourage you to leave your negative thoughts at the door and focus on pushing yourself to do the best you can during the 45 minute sweat session.

Start the ride with an easy “flat road” level of resistance. Once you’re warmed up, increase the resistance and peddle to the music. For the next 30 minutes you’ll go through intervals of “standing up” on the bike, doing push ups over the handles, all the while turning up the resistance to keep your legs working hard. The class ends with 10 minutes of hand weights and a cool down. Be prepared to sweat everything out!

Smart Water

AdrianneHo_BlueTechPack_13Every time you sweat you expend water from your body. That’s why it’s so important to rehydrate after a workout and properly hydrate throughout the day. A good way to calculate how much water to drink is the following…

You need a half ounce of fluid per day for every pound of body weight.
Divide that number by 8 to get that number in cups.
For example if you weigh 120lbs, you need to drink 60 oz. of fluid, which is 7.5 cups for the day.

Now that’s called smart water!

Post Workout Rundown

AdrianneHo_BlueTechPack_1What you do after your workout is just as important as what you do during it. That time is crucial to repair muscles and build strength. Anything that gradually slows down heart rate and stretches out muscles like a slow 3-5 minute walk or a set of yoga poses helps. This will prevent dizziness right after an intense workout and reduce soreness the next day.

Gluten-Free Quinoa Pasta

SweatTheStyle_AncientHarvest_Quinoa There is nothing as satisfying as a bowl of pasta after a workout, but before feasting check out a few great alternatives to the traditional flour laden pastas. This gluten-free quinoa pasta from Ancient Harvest is made from organic corn flour and organic quinoa flour and is so close to taste and texture to the real thing you won’t feel like you’re substituting anything. It’s worth trying next time you go Italian!

Food & Drink
Guava

SweatTheStyle_Guava Guavas are a tropical powerhouse of antioxidants. They’re a remarkable source of Vitamin C, a whopping 600% of your recommended daily intake. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin and antioxidant that protects our cells from radical damage via internal and external stressors like emotional stress, strenuous workouts, pollution, and chemicals in our food & beauty products. It strengthens our body’s ability to fight infection and thus, shortens the duration of illness like the common cold and flu. Vitamin C is also needed for healthy collagen building so I consider it a true beauty food that’s great for the skin.

Be sure to eat guava with its skin on as most of the nutrients are in the peel. Enjoy them as a snack or throw into a salad for a touch of sweetness. Of course, eat guavas in moderation. They should be considered a treat since they are high in fructose and not a local food for those living in cooler climates.
