Fit Body Boot Camp Burlingame Gym Training 2/5/16: Challenge Days 29 & 32- 6 Station Fat Loss Rotation

4 Phase Warm-Up:

Phase 1: Child’s Pose >  Squat Rock Position Breathing (2 Min) *For those who can’t get into deep squat position then 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) 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.

Set Gym Boss or Interval App to: 30s work time, 5s rest for 6 sets

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

Phase 4: Primal Movements –Review the following movements in the WOD below for 5 reps *Goal is blood flow, not max efforts

*Review WOD below during Phase 3 above and 4 as needed. Assign campers stations for the WOD below. After Phase 4 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.
