The beauty of working from home sans a daily commute is that I have way more time to workout. I’m a long-distance runner with 5K’s, 10K’s, and a possible marathon on my list of long-term goals, so I’m always looking for the best running tips to keep me on track. I’ve also noticed more and more people taking up outdoor running in lieu of the fact that most gyms are still closed. However, whether you’re hitting the pavement or pacing on a treadmill, there are plenty other ways to elevate your skills and confidence outside of a healthy diet, adequate sleep, and of course, plenty of water intake (none of which you should stop doing,...

Since it seems very clear I won't be returning to an in-studio gym class anytime soon, I've recently rented a Spin bike from a New York City cycling studio, and I'm bringing my fitness game straight to my living room. Now, not only does working out in the middle of the day require some cleansing considerations no matter where it takes place, I'm personally not going to take a bath in the morning to only hop on the bike a couple hours later. After shifting my schedule all around, I have a brand-new beauty routine that I've been loving for these midday, hot-weather workouts. I've already replicated my favorite, chilled eucalyptus towels with some essential oil , but find out which two skin-care products I've been using every day post-ride - and why I love them for just that purpose - ahead.
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?

I could buy leggings all day every day, but when it comes to sports bras, to say I'm particular is an understatement. I've got a larger chest, which means I can't wear just anything. I work out every single day, but I like to switch it up, so one day I'm going on a hike, the next I'm taking a dance cardio class, and the next I'm doing pilates. I know firsthand that if a bra's not supportive enough, I'm going to have a bad workout, but the truth is that those super supportive bras aren't always comfortable. When I'm going into a lower impact workout, I want a bra that feels comfortable without being restrictive, and I finally found it. The Lululemon Free to Be Elevated Bra ($52) is one of my favorite bras I've ever tried. It perfectly walks the line between being supportive and comfortable. I wore it on a hike, and then promptly did laundry so I could wear it again for a yoga class the next day. If you have a larger chest and want the perfect light-to-medium-support bra, this is it.
