Carlton’s Home Quarantine Workout #1 BEGINNER

March 24, 2020

Stuck at home and feeling the need to move? I can help. Follow me through this BEGINNER workout. There are 4 clusters of exercises. All you need is enough room on the cleanish ground to lie down. This entire workout takes about 10 minutes for one round. If one round is enough for you, stop there. You could repeat this up to 5 times if need be. I also did my best to demonstrate other ways to make things a bit more challenging if needed. Keep in mind “harder” is only better if your form looks good and doing less is just not challenging for you. I should also add that doing “more” is rarely beneficial for anyone. Do something that is repeatable! Consistency is key! Start slow. Build strong. Never do anything that hurts. Understand that there is a difference in something that hurts and something that is uncomfortable. Exercise by its very nature should be slightly uncomfortable and challenging but don’t get carried away. For anyone with special challenges, write me and I will do my best to help. Consult with a medical professional if you have any serious medical issues.

Covid-19 general info

March 24, 2020

 

View this post on Instagram

The CDC recommends checking your temperature twice daily. It should be below 100.4°. If it’s not, stay your ass home. If you don’t feel 100%, stay your ass home. And if you do go out, limit the number of people you have to be around. Keep some distance from their face, some recommend 6 feet. Clean your hands before you go touching your face or touching food or handling anything that someone with a compromised immune system may use, especially infants and the elderly. Use common sense even if it’s not that common anymore. Be kind to your neighbors. Help others if you can. Get plenty of rest. Go for a walk every day. Get in some exercise. There are tons of ways to exercise at home with little or no equipment. Get comfortable cooking. Learn to cook if not. Read a book. Call an old friend or family member. Don’t hoard toilet paper. Be safe out there… #bssbbooks #blueskystrongbox

Boost the Immune System with a Daily Walk!

There is no vaccine or medicine to get rid of this virus and there won’t be anytime soon. I don’t say this to scare anybody but to emphasize the importance of taking good care of our health right now. Obviously, staying home is the best thing most of us can do. Besides that, get plenty of rest. Eat well. Stay positive. Don’t over-exercise. Don’t over-work. Just chill. In today’s video I recommend daily waking. Walking outdoors is obviously the best option. Nothing too intense. Aim for 30min each day. Why? It promotes a healthy immune system and reduces stress. Everyone should know that if or when we do get sick, the only thing we can really do is ride it out… unless an emergency situation arises. Riding it out means the only “driver” in the car is our immune system. Don’t delay. Start today. #healthyimmunesystem #walkingforhealth #fightcaronavirus #austinpersonaltrainer #austinpersonaltraining #austinpersonaltrainers #blueskystrongbox

Immune System part 2

Immune System

THE IMMUNE SYSTEM. When it’s all said and done, it’s all we got as protection against the outside world. This will NEVER change, even if times like these remind us more than ever. The same “things to do” for improving health also improve the immune system: Quality rest. Eating a variety of fruits, veggies, herbs, spices,etc. Regular exercise. Adequate hydration. Managing Stress. Managing stress is a vast subject. This may require professional help. Anything lacking or in excess could be interpreted as stress by the body. That could include something like too little or too much exercise, too little or too much time alone and too little or too much sunshine. The key here is balance, as with everything in life. Obviously extreme anger, fear, sadness and over-working could cause some very serious issues. One area not mentioned enough is breathing and oxygen. We obviously need it. So avoid things that cause unwanted interruptions in breathing, again things like unchecked anger and fear. Lastly, yes be careful with germs. Use common sense here. Obviously, eliminating germs altogether would be impossible and quite possibly even unwise. Too much is dangerous. Too little? This may be dangerous as well. Find a balance. Listen to your body. Take care of your health. Your life, or someone you love, may depend on it. #coronavirüsü #immunesystem #healthfirst #austinpersonaltrainer #austinpersonaltraining #austinpersonaltrainers #sleepquality #fruitsandveggieseveryday #regularexercise #managingstress #managinganxiety #deepbreathing #deepbreathingexercises #blueskystrongbox

There are so many cookbooks. Why? Many of us have a romantic view of cooking and eating tasty things we brewed up ourselves. But many of us barely have the time to eat some days let alone cook. It only makes sense that cooking at home be kept easy and simple. It should also be reasonably healthy and save more money than eating out. It should also be relaxing, fun and enjoyable. If you don’t know who JAMIE OLIVER is, check him out. I love ‘em. He’s passionate about getting people to cook and does everything he can to inspire others to do so regularly while keeping things tasty, simple, affordable and enjoyable. He has a few books out there, some of which i have yet to see but I’m sure all equally great. This one in particular is wonderful. (FYI-His TED TALK is worth the time.) With so many choices these days I just wanted to point out a bright star in an ever expanding sky full of things that often glitter but are rarely gold. Thank you @jamieoliver for all you do. #bssbbooks #jamieoliver5ingredients #jamieoliver #jamieoliver15minutemeals #jamieoliverquickandeasyfood #blueskystrongbox
