Ah, sweet summertime. If the warm months don't already put a big smile on your face, rewinding to summer in the early 2000s definitely will. You know, back in the days of "scene boys," DC sneakers, pink razor flip phones, and Myspace bulletins. When Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake's love life owned our hearts, and Livestrong bracelets were the fashion statement of the decade. It's hard not to feel giddy while reminiscing on summers back in the day, so we might as well relive it whenever we can, right? Here are some of our favorite things that we miss about summer in the 2000s (and we're pretty sure you'll miss them too!).

  • If Your Workouts Look Different Every Day, This 10-Minute Cooldown Is For You

    No two days are alike when it comes to my fitness routine, except for my cooldowns. Since I rotate between barre, Pilates, yoga, and jogs to prevent workout boredom, I need a one-size-fits-all cooldown to keep me feeling good. "Simplicity is the key [to any cooldown]," Holly Strickland - a NASM-certified personal trainer and franchise partner with Burn Boot Camp Naples - says. In her opinion, it only takes 5-10 minutes to help with recovery, soreness, and injury prevention. That's why the expert's 10-minute cooldown plan is my go-to - there are really no excuses as to why I can't make time to do it after any sweat. Strickland says it can be used for anything from running to leg day. "During this portion of the workout, we are slowing [the] heart rate down and stretching out the muscles we used during the workout," Strickland explains. See for yourself how effective, easy, and adaptable Strickland's cooldown is by completing one to two rounds of the stretching routine, ahead. Spend 45-90 seconds on each movement with no rests in-between - unless your body starts telling you otherwise. Related: Not Sure How to Cool Down After a Workout?
