Fit Body Boot Camp Burlingame Fitness Trainer 3/2/16: Challenges Day 12 & 57-Challenge Friday

4 Phase Warm-Up:

Phase 1: Bent Over Breathing (60-120s)

Perform 1-2 minutes of diaphragmatic breathing, while at the same time educating clients about posture and hip hinge. See video > Diaphragmatic Breathing Video

Standing with knees slightly bent and teach clients how to externally rotate shoulders > hinge from hip *Make sure back is flat.  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 (belly falls) > 5s hold > 5s exhale. 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.
