Halle Berry shows off her yoga pose with the shoulder stand

Here we get a glimpse of how the beautiful Halle Berry keeps her amazing body in shape. She stresses the importance of stretching on Instagram with a stunning photograph of her doing the shoulder stand yoga pose.

This #FitnessFriday is dedicated to the importance of stretching! After I work out, it’s important for me to stretch and lengthen. Fitness is not just about running, lifting and punching. For me, being athletic and super fit is also about being still, stretching and breathing. Including stretching in my fitness program helps my muscles stay long, limber, improves my mobility and range of motion and, most importantly, helps me avoid injuries. This is one of my favorite #yoga poses, the shoulder stand, that stretches my lower spine and legs. I feel 2 inches taller after this stretch! Some people use yoga poses to manage stress, increase circulation, for medication, recovery, better sleep, and mobility just to name a few. Check out my Fitness IG Story to see a stretch I like for hip mobility that lengthens my sides and for today's #keto meal. Today I challenge you to share your best yoga pose. If you don't have one, I encourage you to search for one, post about it, tag #FitnessFridayHB and tell me how it makes you feel. ??????????

You’re often tired with the travel schedule, and on many occasions you’re stuck with business dinners that pack in the calories, plus access to easy breakfasts filled with pasties and bacon. If you have good workout habits at home, travel can often disrupt schedules for even the most devoted workout warriors, let alone someone just looking to stay healthy.

But you also some nice advantages on the road as well if you choose to take advantage of them. Practically every hotel these days offers a fitness center that’s open 24/7, so convenience shouldn’t be an excuse. It’s a matter of making exercise a priority as explained in the video above.

  

Tips to prepare for a marathon

OK let’s get down to it. There are basically good and bad practices when preparing for a marathon.

To successfully run and complete a marathon, here are things to avoid. Don’t eat the wrong food before you race, like a MacDonald’s for instance. Stay clear of anything new, your stomach needs to be in good working order. Eat the wrong food and you could get “runner trots”. Try to eat a healthy pre-race meal before you set off.
