Vegan Strong Team Boot Camp
Pumping iron is great, but when you can’t get to a gym and still need to train, resistance bands are an effective, portable way to make that happen. Burn a little rubber (and a lot of fat!) with this exercise band workout. All you need is one or more super-affordable resistance bands and your own body to get your heart racing and your muscles pumping. Once you learn to train with resistance bands, you will have the confidence to train effectively anytime and anywhere.
Full-Body Mobility & Flexibility
There is never a bad time to focus on flexibility and mobility. Over time, our joints and soft tissue become restricted. Resistance training and moving around do help, but there is simply no substitute for spending quality time stretching our bodies. Not only is it good for recovery from workouts, healing, and longevity, it just feels good to be loose and limber. Join Giacomo as he takes you through an inspiring stretching routine that will have you reaching for more.
