Is It Smart To Exercise During a Juice Fast?

Many people wonder if it’s a safe idea to work out during a juice detox. They wonder if their body will have plenty energy to sustain their normal workout. Honestly, the body usually will have more energy than it does while eating normally. This newfound energy is one of the awesome benefits of doing a juice fast.

It should be noted that we should set some guidelines and practice common sense. it would be a bad idea to train for a marathon say while on a juice detox. This type of exercise is very challenging and takes a whole bunch of calories, calories you simply won’t be getting on a juice detox. So, don’t even think about CrossFit or lifting heavy weights and go for some less intense exercises that will get your body moving and get those toxins out.

The following are a few of the greatest exercises to incorporate into your juice cleanse.

Simply Walk

Well you knew I was going to include this one. And that’s because walking is how our ancestors got to where they needed to go. A brisk walk will increase your heart rate to that target spot and get your blood flowing. You might notice you feel even more energized as as the walk goes on because your juice fast is making it possible for you to use the energy generally reserved for digesting food. Go ahead, try to climb that giant hill you normally skip – you may find this increase of energy will make you victorious.

Swim

Swimming is just an extraordinary way to stay active while you’re on a juice cleanse. It is so gentle on your joints, works all of your major muscle groups, including your abs, and is so calming yet fun.

Try Yoga

Yoga is fantastican way to stretch your body gently and keep your muscles toned as well. Bikram yoga I might add is great as its’ practiced in hot rooms which makes you really sweat. This is perfect for getting rid of those toxins your juice cleanse is helping you release.

Jump Up and Down

Rebounding is my all time favorite exercise ever and the one when used along with your juice fast, can bring around the best benefits. If you’re not familiar with rebounding, think back to the old days when you could spend night and day jumping on the trampoline. That’s rebounding, except instead of a large trampoline in outside, you jump on a mini trampoline anywhere in your house – as long as it’s in a room with high ceilings!

Rebounding has been named “the greatest exercise ever devised by man,” according to NASA – and they use it in their training of astronauts. Rebounding is the single real exercise that can flush your lymphatic system, again, helping you get rid of built-up toxins. And because your body is being subjected to 3-5Gs (gravitational force) every time you use a rebounder, every single cell in your body is strengthened at the exact same time. And it just so happens, it’s a riot to do, and doing it along with your juice fast is a awesome way to stay active.

So, is exercising a safe idea while you’re on a juice fast? Without a doubt! Just make sure to use some common sense.
