Boot Camp Burlingame Personal Training 9/18/15: Skinny Jean Solution Day 24: Spartan Body Weight Workout

Similar past workout:

4 Phase Warm-Up:

Phase 1: Wide Child’s Pose Position Breathing/Drawing In Maneuver (2 min) Perform 1-2 minutes of diaphragmatic breathing and abdominal recruitment while in child’s pose with  wide knees & extended arms: Initiate breathing with belly (let it fall into thighs)–>rib cage and then chest, instead of initiating with chest. 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 relax they should feel their chest going closer to the ground.

Phase 2: Foundation Mobility Training (5 Min) Incorporate movements similar or the same as the workouts below Explain the need to be in good posture for optimal breathing efficiency, strength, endurance, balance, etc  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.
