Fit Body Boot Camp Burlingame Personal Training 3/22/16: Challenges Day 75: Core-Cardio Body Weight Fat Burner

Phase 1: Warm-Up: Perform 3 minutes of diaphragmatic breathing while lying supine: Diaphragmatic Breathing video
Lie on back and 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–> 5s hold–> 5s exhale). Emphasize that campers do this upon rising and going to sleep and if they want an amazing shift in their state at any time, while breathing think about 3 things they are grateful for.

Phase 2: Floor Stretches (5 min) *Work on forearm/wrist mobility

Phase 3: Review GROUP WOD during phase 2 and 3 as needed.   After review boot campers immediately transition to WOD as a large group. They can get water at any time on their own.

WOD: We will be doing 2 min of cardio followed by 4 core exercises and then again another 2 min of cardio & 4 more core exercises for 3 rounds.

Perform the following core/cardio workout in a GROUP (no need to assign groups).  All core exercises are 50s each. There should be a quick transition as a group (10s) between exercises. Make sure core is engaged and posture is good.
