The 4th of July might’ve been a few days ago, but the fact is, the older we get, the longer our hangovers last - and it freaking sucks.
Remember our early twenties when we could go out multiple nights in a row, and feel totally fine? We must’ve had superpowers because there’s no WAY we’d be able to do that anymore. Our recovery time is wayyyyy longer (BUT the 4th of July was totally worth it).
Here’s the deal. We’re gonna help you sweat out that last bit of your hangover, and have you feeling 100%. So you ready to do this? Cause it’s time.
THE HUNGOVER WORKOUT
Ain’t nobody gonna be running around when they’re hungover OR making too many quick movements (we know that). The goal is to sweat it out, not throw it up. So first thing you’re gonna wanna do fill up your water bottle, cause rehydration is necessary.
Once you’ve done that, it’s time to warm up.
A fast-paced walk is great - focus on your form and the strides you’re taking. Try to make the most of each step, and really reach to cover more ground with each step you take. Have your arms moving, and incorporate your whole body - this isn’t a leisurely walk.
After about 10-15 solid minutes of that, you should be warmed up.
To keep your heart rate up, you’ll want to move between exercises fairly quick.
1: 20 x jumping squats
All you need to do is stand with your legs shoulder-width apart. Start by doing a regular squat, but once you get as low as you can, you’ll want to jump up explosively. When you land, lower your body back down into the squat position (that’s one rep). If you’re too hungover, you can do these without the jump in between.
2: 20 x lateral lunges with a leg extension (don’t forget to do 20 x left side, 20 x right side).
To start this one, you’ll want to stand up straight and take a lateral step to the right. Keep your toes pointed forward and stay low. Extend your left knee, and shift your weight to your right foot. Maintain good posture, and on the way back up - shift weight to your left foot and continue to raise your right leg into the air. Keep your balance and continue with this motion for 20 reps, before switching sides.
3: 20 x regular lunges with an air kick (don’t forget to do 20 x left side, 20 x right side).
This one is going to start with a regular lunge forward, and instead of going back into standing position, you’ll want to shift your weight to your back foot, and kick your front foot into the air and land back in the lung position (that’s one rep). Keep your balance and continue with this motion for 20 reps, before switching sides.
Once you’re done that, start back with the first movement and go through the mini-circuit again. And last (but definitely not least), mix up your Extra Kick Flat Tummy Shake. It’s packed with extra nutrients to refuel your body with all the good stuff, to help get back on track after the festivities. Yep, you’re welcome.
