What I Learned from the Asparagus Band


As we approach the end of the year, I see so many people preparing for the holidays and the New Year. With the New Year come’s New Year Resolutions, or promises to yourself for activities you want to accomplish. I’m included in this group of people! Hustling and bustling and taking time to recap my past year then look forward to the next.

Part of my New Year Resolution, or Promise is to gain 15 pounds of lean muscle and MAINTAIN IT! Instead of waiting to begin January 1st, I started it this week! It feels great!!

Starting ANYTHING feels amazing! As I started my new fitness JennySung.com New Years Resolutionsroutine towards accomplishing my goal, my Promise, I am reminded that MANY, MANY people will make it a goal to get fit next year.


Here is something that will serve you better than any other tip you’ll probably get and it comes from an asparagus band. You know the rubber bands that are tightly keeping the asparagus together at the grocery stores? Those bands are on tight! When you take them off, they instantly snap back into place. There is little room for stretching. However, if you slowly stretch them, little by little and as they warm to room temperature, you’ll find they’ll begin to loosen. You can learn a lot from these little bands in creating better fitness experiences.

Always be sure to warm up your muscles before working them. For example, if you plan to workout your arms and shoulders today, be sure to keep the heart pumping to put oxygen to those muscles with exercises like running in place, jumping jacks, and more. When the warm up (at least 3-5 minutes) is complete take the next 2-5 minutes to stretch those muscles. NEVER attempt to stretch COLD muscles. Doing so can cause pain & injury!

Here is an activity most people fail to complete at the END of a workout, it’s a cool down period of stretching. Cooling down the body SLOWLY brings the heart rate back down to normal. The stretching releases the lactic acid that forms and builds during the workout AND rushes necessary oxygen BACK to the muscles that have been depleted during the workout.  These activities in your body will help prevent soreness at post-workout so you’ll be ready to get back to it tomorrow!

Remember to have a high quality, post-workout nutrition and protein shake to put back in the nutrients you used and feed your muscles so they can properly recover throughout the day; heck, throw some of that asparagus into your shake! (If you don’t have an optimal post workout recovery shake, let me know, I’d be happy to discuss with you!)
