My Secret Weapon for a STRONGER Workout

This post is sponsored by on behalf of Breathe Right®.

Ladies, listen up. You are STRONG. You are powerful. You are amazing. You are capable of putting in the work and embracing that inner goddess always, especially during a workout. I’ll be the first to admit that sometimes it’s easier said than done – been there, been through that. But, it can be done and I’ve got a little bit of a secret weapon for you. 

Figure out what’s holding you back – and change it. 

Easy enough, right? For most women, we’re afraid to challenge ourselves in a workout because we don’t want to “bulk up” or we come up with every excuse in the book to prioritize everyone else in our lives over our own health. Well, today is a new day and we’re taking control of our lives…and our workouts. 

I’ve been getting in the majority of my workouts at home over the past few months and I’ve found myself having to get a lot more creative. Lately, my favorite way to get in a good sweat is with an epic kickboxing workout. If you’ve never tried boxing or kickboxing, get ready to change ya life. You also may or may not find yourself struggling just a bit with breathing during a new workout routine. No worries, Breathe Right® Nasal Strips have your back. 

I know what you’re thinking. That’s your secret weapon, Lauren??? YES. It sure is. Not only are Breathe Right Nasal Strips #1 pharmacist recommended but they open up your nose to help you breathe easier during a sweaty, high impact, workout. Thank me later.

I’m not sure how else to explain it but there is this “ahhh” moment that happens almost instantly. As soon as I put on one of the Breathe Right Nasal Strips, I can already tell that I’m breathing better. And, in case ya didn’t know, being able to breathe better during a workout is a pretty amazing thing. Rather than ending the workout earlier because of nasal congestion, you now have an opportunity to challenge yourself with this new ease of breathing. Don’t get me wrong, a good workout should still leave you with that “Oh. My. Gosh.”  feeling but now it’s an “Oh.My. Gosh. I can breathe easier – and that was a killer workout”. 

HOW TO APPLY: I like to apply my strips during my pre-workout warmup and stretching routine. First, wash and thoroughly dry your face. Next, position the nasal strip along the width or your nose with the tabs on your nostrils. The tabs should sit just above the flaring part of your nostrils. Press down to apply the strip. Easy! 

WHY WE LOVE IT: Breathe Right Nasal Strips are adhesive strips that fit right above the flare of the nostrils to open up your nose so you can breathe with less resistance. The nasal strips provide instant relief for congestion due to colds, allergies, or a deviated septum – and if you ask me, they’re the perfect secret weapon for everything from yoga, jogging outside or a fun virtual dance class. 

The best part? You can find Breathe Right at all your favorite retailers in the cough/cold section!
