Welcome back to my 2016 Fitness Goals series! This is a 4-part series where I’ll be sharing four long-term fitness goals that I’ll be tackling over the course of the year.
In the first installment I talked about my number one goal for the year – Working on my booty. Squats, lunges, and bridges – Oh My!
Next I talked about the LONG TERM goal of staying on top of my personal health by moving every day. Yes – Every single day.
So what’s my third goal to focus on this year? Regaining my left and right splits!
I was a gymnast growing up and have retained a great deal of my flexibility. Toe touches? No problems! Basic yoga moves? Easy peasy Japanesey! But my love affaire with yoga in 2015 reinforced that I had lost some of my flexibility – Namely my forward splits.
Something like this is NOT a quick & easy goal. It’s not something you can just force. It’s a long-term, work-on-it-every-day kinda thing.
So for this goal, in combination with my previous booty goal, I’ll be adding more stretching & yoga to my routine each week. You can also check out more on my yoga goals in my 30 Day Challenge for August!
