Boot Camp San Mateo Health Club Group Training 10/22/15: Holiday Transformation Challenge Day 18: Cardio-Cardio Workout!

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).
