I workout for about an minute every morning, however i am dedicated to and extreme about our exercise regimen, but even if I’m busy, stressed, tired or not feeling well, I take the time to workout.
It’s pressing to myself and others that I maintain a healthy weight and focus on strength, balance and flexibility.
I sometimes run, ride our bike, swim or kayak as a workout. I often complete multiple types of lunges, squats, burpees and jumping jacks, and one of our favorite workouts is jumping rope. It’s a wonderful way to labor the entire body and build stamina. I tend to overwork our legs, however the muscles frequently become sore, and I have concerns with cramping in our calves. I’ve tried over-the-counter ointments. I’ve taken Aleve and wrapped heating pads around our legs. I finally found relief from the pain when I shopped at the local cannabis dispensary. I explained our issues to the budtender, who recommended cannabis-infused topicals! He suggested CBD-dominant products, and I was surprised by how several there are to choose from. The dispensary carries a wide selection of topicals, including bath bombs, soaks, ointments, lotions, roll-ons and sprays, however since they cause no psychoactive effects, they can be applied several times per morning. There is no maximum dosage, plus, I can use the CBD topicals along with other consumption methods to treat our muscle cramps from the inside and the outside. I’ve found that a combination of transdermal patches, ointments and tinctures provides effective relief. I’ve also added more stretching to our workouts, a longer cool down and I have mornings where I rest our legs and concentrate more on the upper body.
