Fit Body Boot Camp Burlingame Gym Training 2/13/16: Challenge Days 34 & 37- Saturday Obstacle Challenge

4 Phase Warm-Up:

Phase 1: Child’s Pose –>  Squat Rock Position Breathing (2 Min) *For those who can’t into deep squat position perform child’s pose entire time

Perform 2 minutes of diaphragmatic breathing while in child’s pose (1 min)  and then squat rock (1 min). Initiate breathing with belly (let it fall into thighs)  –> rib cage and then chest, instead of initiating with chest.  Rock back & forth from heels to toes with squat rock. 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) > 5s hold > 5s exhale.

As they continue to breathe and rock they should feel their heels going closer to the ground. Emphasize slow, deep, rhythmic breaths during and after workouts. Do daily work on breathing before eating, if stressed, depressed, in the car etc. given it is our number one need. We can change our physiological state in seconds via breathing. If we master breathing, we can enjoy life at its fullest. Inverted or chest breathing sympathetic dominance (flight/fight response)à digestive complaints, neck issues, TMJ, grinding of teeth, anxiety, scarcity, belly fat and more.

The purpose of this is to educate about the inhalation in the right order, which allows us to stabilize the core and prepare for the workout. As they continue to breathe they should feel the body relaxing.

Phase 2:  Stationary Foundation Mobility Training or Moving Dynamic Warm-up (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.
