ADD yoga

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Hot & Healthy -

LOVE SPIN­NING? “In­door cy­cling puts a lot of pres­sure on the back and hip flex­ors,” Lovitt says. “Yoga poses like cres­cent lunge and pi­geon will

open the hips.”

LOVE CROSS­FIT?

ADD Barre

Strength and power de­velop as you race to fin­ish the WOD. “Barre elon­gates the mus­cles

so they don’t get bulky in ar­eas you’re con­stantly push­ing,”

Lovitt ex­plains.

LOVE RUN­NING?

ADD pi­lates

Run­ners tend to have ex­tra strong quads and tight­ness in the shoul­ders and chest. Pi­lates will strengthen the up­per back and ab mus­cles that you

might ne­glect.

LOVE BOX­ING?

ADD hik­ing

Box­ing drives the heart rate up fast; bal­ance that with low in­ten­sity. “Go out for a long dis­tance hike,” sug­gests Lovitt. “The more en­durance you have, the longer you’ll

last at the bag.”
