FULL BODY FLEXIBILITY VIDEO

WORKOUT 1

FULL UPS

Description: Begin laying on your back with your legs straight and your arms extended overhead. Without allowing your legs to come off the floor, use your core to pull your upper body up into a long-sitting position.

Goal: 3 rounds of 8 reps. 

V STAND - LEVEL 0.5

Description: Start sitting on floor with legs out straight and toes pointed. Position hands on floor in front of hips trying for near middle of the thigh. Lean forward and give a strong push with your triceps and shoulders downward to lift your bottom. HOLD the V-stand and lift one leg at a time. Do 10 reps of one leg before switching legs.

Goal: 3 rounds of 10 reps each leg. 

PRE BRIDGE TWIST

Description: Begin in a plank on elbows. Rotate one leg over the other while rotating on one shoulder as far as you can. Hold for 10 seconds then return to a plank. Rotate the opposite direction.

Goal: 3 rounds of 5 reps each direction.

OVERLAP PUSH UP

Description: Place one hand over the other with your hands in the center of your body. Perform a push up dropping your chest between your hands.

Goals: 3 rounds of 10 reps

TABLE TOP OPPOSITE ARM/LEG

Description: Begin in a table position. Squeeze your core and glutes while you lift one leg and the oppsite arm to high-five your knee. Go as slow and controlled as you can.

Goal: 3 rounds of 10 reps each side

STALDER SQUATS

Description: Follow the video to do a stalder squat. The goal is to be able to hold the position while lifting one leg at a time (then eventually both feet), but to begin you may need to focus on squatting and weight bearing through your arms.

Goal: 3 rounds of 3 reps with 10 seconds HOLDS. 

Focus on the squat part. We will add the leg lifting in later. Feet in line with your dumbbells. Tuck tail in, squat core, then drop hips down as low as you can go.

TWIST SQUATS

Description: Start in the horse stance squat (hips and knees at 90 degrees.) Twist 90 degrees to one side, then complete bending the knee to the floor. Goal is to keep the stance narrow to allow the back knee to land at the front heel.

Goal: 3 rounds of 8 reps per leg.

CALF RAISES WITH INVERSION

Description: Hold onto something for balance support. Start by pointing your toes outward a little then come up onto your toes. As you perform the calf raise, try to tilt the increase of your foot upward (like a dancer).

Goal: 3 rounds of 10 reps 

QUAD STRETCH

Description: This move starts in a lunge with the back leg bent with knee directly against a wall. From there you will push your lower back towards wall causing a stretch to your hip flexor and quad.

Goal: 15 second holds 4 reps per side

Workout 1 is complete! I'm proud of you Patrick!

WORKOUT 2

FROG STAND HOLDS

Description: This move starts by placing your hands on the ground flat in front of you slightly wider than your shoulders. You will then bring your feet close to your hands to allow your inner thigh near your knees to lean against your elbows. From there you will lean forward to lessen weight on your feet until you can lift BOTH FEET up off the ground.

Goal: 3 rounds of 3 reps for as long as you can hold.

Extra Notes: Put a pillow down by your head for if/when you lose your balance forwards 🙂

HANDSTAND WALL WALK UP

Description: This move starts in a tall plank position with your feet close to the wall. As you walk your hands backwards towards the wall, walk your feet up the wall. Use your core to keep your lower back from arching.

Goal: 3 rounds of 2 reps. 

PIKE TO PLANK

Description: This move begins in the pike position. Without moving your feet you will lower into a plank having to shift your body weight forward over your elbows. Use your core to then pull yourself back up into a pike.

Goal: 3 rounds of 8 reps. 

COIL SQUATS

Description: Start in the horse stance squat (hips and knees at 90 degrees.) Twist further than 90 degrees to one side allowing the back leg to pass under the front leg, then complete bending the knee to the floor as much as possible.

Goal: 3 rounds of 5 reps each direction. 

HANGING CRUNCHES

Description: Hanging on a pull-up bar or equivalent surface, tuck your knees to your chest then return to fully straight position.

Goal: 3 rounds of 10 crunches.

*Extra notes: focus on the lowering of your legs down. It should take 2-3 times as long to lower them as it does it bring them up.*

PULL UP NEGATIVES

Description: This move begins with lifting yourself into a pull-up position by using a box or step of some kind. You will focus on control lowering yourself back into the full hang. Use the step to hop back up into a pull-up position again. 

Goal: 3 rounds of 10 negatives with at least 5 second lowering

SPLIT PULSES

Description: This move starts by leaning forward and allowing your hands to reach the ground with knees bent. Then slide your legs out to the side, straightening your knees as you slide them outwards. Once you reach a comfortable split position with minimal stretching, you will gently pulse your groin up and down to give an additional stretch at the bottom of the pulse and back to resting position at the top of the pulse allowing your body weight to be partially supported by your arms.

Goal: 4 reps with 15 seconds of pulsing

SHOULDER STRETCH WITH TOWEL

Description: This move starts in standing. You will hold the towel with 1 arm that will lift above your head causing the towel to be placed behind your back. Then with the other arm you will reach behind your back for the towel. Work your hands towards each other using the towel as a guide to bring them closer together. When you have reached as closely together as you can, use the upper hand to pull the towel slightly up to give an extra stretch to the lower hand behind your back.

Goal: 3 reps each arm with 15 sec holds

SHOULDER EXTENSION STRETCH

Description: Start standing with hands on a surface waist height or higher. Then walk feet backwards and bend at hips to allow the shoulders to open.

*Focus on making sure your back doesn’t arch and the movement comes from your shoulders*

Goal: 4 reps of 10 second holds.

Extra Notes: If you feel more of a stretch in the back of your thighs rather than your shoulders/back/chest – bend your knees! 🙂

Workout 2 is finished! Woo-hoo!!! Take a deep breath and stay focused on your goals. - Bethany 🙂
