Can You Exercise on the Ultimate Reset?
A question I often get asked is — can you exercise on the Ultimate Reset?
If you follow the Ultimate Reset instructions to a T, the answer to the question is NO. While you are encouraged to move around, go for walks, and do lighter exercises that you enjoy, you are not supposed to do a vigorous program (like LIIFT4, the P90X Workouts, Insanity or Body Beast). These intense programs cause your body to need more protein and carbs and create lactic acid, which defeats the purpose of the Reset—to help flush toxins out of your body and reset your organs by giving them a break from protein and carbs.
My coaching philosophy is centered around making personal decisions based on what our own body and soul needs at the time. Let me give you a personal example…
After my divorce, I traveled…a lot. During this time, I allowed unhealthy and un-constructive habits and patterns to take over. There was a moment that it hit me—I really needed to do the Ultimate Reset Cleanse to get me back on track. I needed the detoxification mental reboot that only the Reset can give me.
However, I also needed the stress release and invigoration that I get from exercise. Nothing too intense, just exercise.
A little bit of physical exercise while you’re doing the Ultimate Reset Cleanse is not going to do you any harm. Rather, it can make you feel more alive and better about yourself.
Most importantly—stay hydrated, eat healthy foods according to the eating plan, and don’t overdo it! Drink at least a gallon and a half of distilled water a day, cook your own food, and meditate. Whether or not you throw in some light exercise is totally up to YOU based on YOUR personal needs.
In a word, take care of both your body and mind and, in just 21 days of this healthy endeavor, you will not only look better, but you will feel better as well.
Here’s a little video with more of my thoughts on the question “Can you exercise on the Ultimate Reset?”:
UPDATE: Since I filmed this video, Beachbody released the 3 Week Yoga Retreat, which is available 24/7 on BeachBody On Demand. The gentler and relaxing nature of yoga make this an excellent program to do along with the Ultimate Reset!
