4 Phase Warm-Up:

Phase 1: Bent Over Breathing (120s)

Perform 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) > 5 s hold > 5 s 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. 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.
