Fit Body Boot Camp San Mateo Health Club 12/7/15: Holiday Transformation Challenge Day 63: 6 Station Fat Loss Rotation

Similar past workout:

4 Phase Warm-Up:

Phase 1:  Child’s Pose (1 min) >  Kneeling Groin Rock Position Breathing/Drawing In Maneuver (1 min)

Perform 2 minutes of diaphragmatic breathing while in child’s pose for 1 min followed by kneeling groin rock for 1 min. Extend arms, widen knees and rock forward & back from hips: Initiate breathing with belly (let it fall) and rock forwards–>rib cage and then chest, instead of initiating with chest as you rock back (key is to move from hips). 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 (feel belly go in towards spine). The purpose of this is to educate about the inhalation and to prepare the core to stabilize the spine. As they continue to breathe and rock they should feel their hips opening and lats loosening.

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.

Phase 2: Core (Perform the following movements for 30s in a circuit with a 5s transition for 2 Sets (Total Time: 3:30)

  1. 4 Point Tuck with Opposite Arm & Leg (5s Hold)  *Stay tight- attempt to push over campers (lightly J) *Lock Shoulders Back & Down *3B’s *Relax shoulders
  2. Dancing Crab *Hand bridge position on all 4’s: Start with butt down > lift hips off ground into bridge and reach right hand to left foot > lower hips > repeat on other side*Lock Shoulders Back & Down *3B’s *Modify with regular bridges
  3. Supine Russian Twists *Rotate knees right to left- extend legs to make harder *3B’s *Keep shoulders on the ground

    Phase 4: Primal Movements: Review the WOD below for 5-10 reps *Goal is blood flow, not max efforts

*Review WOD. Assign campers stations for the WOD below. After Phase 5 boot campers immediately transition to WOD. They can get water at any time on their own

 WOD: Perform the following (6 Station) Primary Movements (PM) below for 40s intervals and follow with Active Rest Movement (ARM) for 40s for 3 sets each station, then rotate to next station. All Boot Campers will perform same ARM as a group; however, you can accommodate twice as many campers if half the group does the PM and the other half does ARM. Transition time is 5s between PM & ARM and so they need to move quickly.
