Fit Body Boot Camp San Mateo Weight Loss 12/3/15: Holiday Transformation Challenge Day 59: Who Wants Flat Abs?

3 Phase Warm-Up: 

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.

Phase 2: Floor Stretches (5 min) *Work on forearm/wrist mobility
Phase 3: *Review WOD below during warm-up and assign campers stations for the WOD below. After warm-up boot campers immediately transition to WOD. They can get water at any time on their own
