Boot Camp Belmont Fitness Training 7/6/15: 21 Day Tummy Tuck Day 20- 6 Station Rotation

4 Phase Warm-Up:

Phase 1:  Foundation Mobility Training (5 Min) *Add in more wrist mobility work *Start education here about the importance of breathing, emphasize slow, deep, rhythmic breaths, in and out of the nose, initiated from diaphragm (belly should rise first, rib cage second, chest third). Push the need to daily work on breathing before eating, if stressed, depressed, in the car etc. given it is our number one need. We can change our physiological state in seconds via breathing. If we master breathing, we can enjoy life at its fullest. Inverted or chest breathing sympathetic dominance (flight/fight response) > digestive complaints, neck issues, tmj, grinding of teeth, anxiety, scarcity, belly fat and more.  In addition, explain the need to be in good posture for optimal breathing efficiency and to reduce potential injuries. With each movement incorporate breathing and make the movements flow.  If there are tight areas focus on those areas and continue to breathe.

Phase 2: Kneeling Squat Rock Position Breathing/Drawing In Maneuver (2 Min) *For those who can’t into this position perform child’s pose

Perform 2 minutes of diaphragmatic breathing and abdominal recruitment while in squat rock: Initiate breathing with belly (let it fall into thighs) –>rib cage and then chest, instead of initiating with chest as you rock back & forth from heels to toes. This is an easy way to teach people diaphragmatic breathing. Breathe in and out of nose for approximately 10s each breath (5s inhale (belly falls)–> 5 s hold–> 5 s exhale and draw belly in towards spine, feeling oblique’s engaging- avoid rounding back). This is not normal breathing given you don’t draw the belly in. The purpose of this is to educate about the inhalation and set the abdominal wall for ab exercises and other movements we do in the workout and prior to all lifts in the real world. This will help to stabilize the spine. As they continue to breathe and rock they should feel their heels going closer to the ground.
