I got lots of questions about the EMS workout I did today. It was actually my first time 😃 I went to X-shape Fitness.
The EMS works by sending low-frequency electric impulses to contract your muscles while you’re working out for 20 min.
I was a little nervous but it was really fun and I laughed a lot.
Once the buzzes started up, they first felt like pins and needles to me. We went through the reps: squats, lunges, crunches, bicep curls, etc. I’m hooked but it is not a replacement to my usual workout routine. I will go for another try 💪🏽⚡️
Endorphins also trigger a positive feeling in the body, similar to that of morphine. I like to get my morphine to survive life.
When I have major changes going on in my life, or I’m just frustrated from work, people or even about where I am, it’s easy to get trapped in a cycle of depression, bad moods and frustration. But when I’m facing a particularly hard time, I head to the gym in order that my stress disappears.
To stay healthy, train yourself to be the sculptor of your moods and remember that adults should do 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity every week.
It appears that any form of exercise can help depression and cycling is a perfect example of a moderate exercise.
I ended last week with a “Glow in the dark – Ride + Wörkout” at Urban Ride. We drove 30 minutes spinning and then 30 minutes workout.
Hahahaha I felt pretty shaky in my legs as that was 3rd workout in row. But afterwards we were invited to pumpkin soup, good cold drink, protein bars and healthy sweets. Yum Yum!
Now I start my week with my batteries fully charged.
You have cycled in the dark and have cycled outside. But have you ever done it on a rooftop with the entire city surrounding you?
OMG today I did it and it was an amazing workout with a great energy and a big smile on my face.
The URBAN DELI is hosting an URBAN RIDE POP UP on the ROOFTOP where you can sweat, cycle, breath some fresh air and enjoy the great view of Stockholm city.
The Urban Ride team packed up the bikes and took them up to the roof. Hats off to a great effort indeed. We found our towels, shoes and weights ready for us.
Join us tomorrow morning, and believe me the beautiful setting will help you through, as the great music, the tough-but-fair instructor and the bunch of incredibly stylish sporty women will be cycling around you.
