Boot Camp Belmont Fitness Training 6/9/15: Core – Cardio Blast‏

Phase 1: Warm-Up: Perform 3 minutes of diaphragmatic breathing while lying supine: Lie on back and initiate breathing with belly–>rib cage and then chest, instead of initiating with chest. Breathe in and out of nose for approximately 15s each breath (5s inhale–> 5 s hold–> 5 s exhale). Emphasize that campers do this upon rising and going to sleep and if they want an amazing shift in their state at any time, while breathing think about 3 things they are grateful for.
