Fit Body Boot Camp San Mateo Weight Loss Program 12/21/15: Total Body Monday!

Past similar workout:

4 Phase Warm-Up:

Phase 1:  Supine Double Knee to Chest Breathing

Perform 1-2 minutes of diaphragmatic breathing while in supine double knee to chest position.  Initiate breathing with belly (feel it press 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 approximately15s each breath (5s inhale (belly falls)–> 5 s hold–> 5 s exhale and relax). Proper breathing is the key to success for life and performance. As they continue to breathe and relax they should feel their knees going closer to the chest.

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.
