Halfway!! Nice work! We hope you’re on track with your classes and are feeling good. If your body is feeling a little fatigued (don’t worry, it’s totally normal!), try out these couple of stretches from Emma below, they’ll help loosen you up before your next class, and are a good way to relax between all your sessions. Make sure you’re checking in with how your body is feeling regularly and are giving yourself time to recover between sessions. Sometimes it can be as simple as scheduling a morning class one day, and an evening class the following day to really give your body some recovery time between sessions. Hannah, Dani, & Emma have shared their halfway tips for you below…
Don’t be afraid to choose a beginner class every now and then throughout the challenge, even if you know you’re at an intermediate level. Recovery is essential during such an intensive period of consistent exercise. Make sure sleep is on the top of your priority list during this time, because our bodies do their best repairing while we’re at rest.
You may start to feel and see some changes in your body, keep going! One way to ensure you can keep attending classes regularly during the KX40 challenge is to recover properly. One way we can do this is to stretch after every class, either at home or by spending 5 minutes on the reformer after class finishes. Ask your trainer for some ideas, we are always happy to share our best stretches!
Halfway there!! Hopefully by now you’re starting to get into a rhythm with your classes and your body is starting to reap the benefits. The best part about our classes is that we target both strength and mobility which is why you might leave class feeling like you’ve not only worked hard but had a stretch at the same time. I personally walk out of class feeling a head taller! This being said, if you are feeling a little tight from the work you’ve done over the previous 3 weeks, I’ve offered below some stretches you can do in the studio before or after your class.
