Friday 10/2/15

Congratulations to everyone participating in the Whole Life Challenge. Two weeks down and things are going great!! Everyone is feeling better, energy levels are high, and the support is through the roof! I hope you’re heading into the weekend stoked to prep for next week. Keep thriving!

WLC Week 3 Lifestyle Practice: Get excited. And make sure you know how to keep score.

Warmup

Dynamic Athletic Movement 

10 Minutes: Movement Flow
Downdog Walk, Frog Hop, Lateral Ape Walk
Reverse Downdog Walk, Reverse Frog Hop, Lateral Monkey Walk

Try doing a few reps of one movement and then switching immediately into a different pattern seamlessly. Start slowly and as you practice increase the speed. Be mindful to use correct form as you play with flowing from one animal to the next. Try to keep moving for the entire 10 minutes.
