Essential Oils & Exercise Part 2: Workout/Post-Workout
Now that you are all warmed up with the pre-workout suggestions found in the post Essential Oils & Exercise Part 1, it’s time to begin your workout! When working out it is important to remember three things: technique, hydration, and recovery.
TechniqueProper technique and form help you avoid injury and maximize results. A vital part of proper technique is how you breathe. During aerobic exercises, get your breathing into a pattern; when training with weights, exhale when exerting.
Keep Breathe Again™ close by to help open nasal passages. Know your limitations and don’t overdo it. If you are new to this type of exercise, start out with a basic workout.
HydrationThe importance of staying hydrated cannot be understated. Keeping your body properly hydrated helps flush out the toxins that are released when working out. Adding a few drops of Peppermint essential oil to your water keeps you alert during your workout.
