Weekly Workouts + Speed Flex + PR

This week, we had the opportunity to try out Speed Flex in Dallas. We were stunned to find out that the studio has been open for 3 years! It is the first of its type in the entire country. This 30 minute class uses machines that elicit isokinetic contractions. This class is meant to provide a personalized intensity of workout, because it’s resistance-based, meaning it allows for β€œa professional athlete to train alongside a retiree”. There should be little to no muscle soreness after taking the class, because it is made up of solely concentric movements. The class we took was a HIIT-type modified Tabata, spending 20 sec at each station & 8 sec to rotate. We wore heart rate monitors around our chest, and mine said that I burned 360 calories in 30 minutes. I did wear my Polar watch, as well, but that only said I burned 180. It was a fun upbeat class, and we would definitely attend again! Info can be found at the link below.

  • Do y'all take a daily probiotic? I'm curious to know! Taking these gummies daily has been an easy addition to my routine, because they taste like candy. This serving of 4 billion live cultures is less than the recommended daily amount, BUT it serves as a supplement to other dietary probiotics that can come from sources like yogurt & kombucha. I'm so glad @influenster sent me this complimentary product to try out.
  • We picked up some peach marinated chicken from the @central_market taste of the south festival & paired it with roasted okra and white rice for a tasty & well-rounded dinner plate. Not pictured: @apothicwine rosΓ©.
  • Coolest gym ever, but we're still Saints fans.
  • It's 4:15 and haven't touched a veggie today. Oops. I'm pretty loyal to the @drinkgreens renew blend, but this is a close second. 4.5 pounds of cucumber + celery + kale + broccoli + lemon + parsley + basil cold pressed into one bottle.
