Unfortunately I tend to grad the Diet Snapples. Unsweeted - yes, but ready made none the less.
Actually, unsweetened iced tea - if it is actually steeped and not ready made Nestea, or pre-bottled stuff - is excellent for you as a hydrator and an exceptional anti-oxidant.
Good point. I added a few new stretches to try to diversify my routine. Some of the stretches I've been doing don't present much of a challenge anymore. Partner stretching always challeneges me and I find that after doing partner stretches I get further down in the split. I just need to con someone into stretching with me after class.
If you have plateaued, your current stretching regimine at class is probably no longer enough to really challenge your muscles. It just limbers them up to their current maximum flexibility. Consider the effect of lifting the exact same weight for the same number of reps and sets for two years straight. At a certain point, you will no longer get any stronger unless you up the weight, reps or sets or a combination of all. If you have done MA for years, stretching before and after class will not yield you the gains in flexibility it once did. Therefore, you must challange your body in a new way to make it adapt.
