Damage control measures: What to do before, during and after a feast to stay in top shape despite overeating and overdrinking?

Jingle bells, ji-jingle bells, gin-gin cin-cingle bells!... After popping the corks and soaking 2020 in excellent sparkling wine and high volume "elixir", the next day the stomach starts rumbling, the head booming and the body screaming for water. Holiday celebrations are meant to be enjoyed, which we usually exaggerate a little thanks to our human nature. Too much eaten, too much drunk, who can't relate to that? To make sure you can swing into the days after the party feeling at your best, we have compiled a damage control measure list. With this knowledge, you will stay in top shape despite double portions and % volume content in your glass!

Maximising your power score: the secret to better performance and post workout happiness

Often, we come out of a workout disappointed because the Row output showed -3.4%, Chest Press -7.0%, Pull Down -12.5%, and your all the times most favourite overhead Press -17.9%. Why is that so? And why appreciating the feeling even more than the numbers is so powerful? As the year is coming to an end, it's time to get cozy, relax, and zoom out for that more complete view, reflect, connect the dots, experience a few aha! moments. Become aware and appreciate the experiences that no power score on the screen could ever capture. Discover the richness that goes beyond the numbers – the richness of the felt experience of those 20 minutes every week trying to increase your strength.

Release tension in 6 Minutes: How to stretch, warm-up and breathe correctly
