There is a physical feeling I experience that I want to describe to you. If you already exercise vigorously enough, then perhaps you are familiar with this feeling but read further as I am describing a delicious sensation that will have you shaking your head "yes".
The onset begins directly post workout but it's the peak that, for me, comes the next day that is the focus of this blog post. Words may fail me but I'll give it a try. It's as if I can feel and am aware of every muscle fiber, no matter how small, as it glides along another muscle fiber. It goes way beyond feeling the muscle as a whole. It's as if each cell represents a musical instrument and I am a spectator listening to a beautiful concerto. Pain is not involved but there is a certain cellular vibration that is achieved after exercise that takes your body to whole new level. When I push my exercise intensity to this sweet spot, it's magical. There is an energy that hovers between my skin and my clothes. All sensation derived from within is heightened.
The awesome part is that this post exercise muscular symphony is not linked to a certain level of fitness. It is available to anyone that wants it, immediately! As a fitness motivator, I believe that describing this positive muscular energy can be a very powerful tool. Go ahead, make others aware of what they can expect and what they can look forward to tomorrow, not just 6 months from now! Think about this, so many people are not in touch with their body. Many are in the habit of absolutely ignoring it and they will miss this feeling entirely. So what a motivation tool this can be!
Everyday my head is held a little higher , my shoulders are back a little further and my step is more joyful simply because every muscle is alive and vibrant. It's glorious. Use my words or just my notion to help your clients, yourself, your family and friends connect with their body.
