It’s 5:15 pm on day 4 of the New Years master cleanse and this is typically where the magic begins. Okay maybe not magic, but most of you should be noticing some very nice changes taking place. Many of you have been sharing your progress in the comments section and I’m thrilled to hear about your success so far.
Many of you have already lost as much as 10 pounds, you’ve noticed your complexion is glowing, and that you just plain feel good. And as good as you feel right now it’s only going to get better as you continue to do the Master Cleanse!
One thing I did want to talk about today was exercising on the Master Cleanse. I highly recommend you stay active when you do the Master Cleanse, but please don’t push yourself too hard.
The cleansing and detoxing process can take its toll on your body and you don’t want to add to that by over exerting yourself while working out.
There is no one size fits all workout I can suggest you do while on the Master Cleanse because the intensity level suitable for you will depend on your current physical condition. In other words an Olympic sprinter can workout harder on the cleanse then a person who’s out of shape and hasn’t worked out in decades.
As a general guideline I suggest you exercise at half the intensity as you normally do:
- If you normally run for an hour a day drop down to a light jog or brisk walk for a half hour a day
If you normally curl 40 pound dumbbells for 20 reps do 10 reps with 20 pound dumbbells
Most importantly you should pay attention to your body, and don’t push yourself too hard. I’m a exercise junkie myself so I know how hard it is to skip a workout, but while doing the Master Cleanse sometimes the best thing to do is relax and take it easy.
