Week 3 of the #YBCstrongflow is here! (Here is the link to previous weeks.) This is the time when people generally struggle the most because the exciting buzz of beginning of the program has worn off but the light at the end of the tunnel isn't quite in sight yet. If you're struggling, keep the faith, connect with other #ybcyogis on instagram or on the yoga forum. And if you'd like to connect with James for macros help, fill out the form at the end of this post and if not, let's get right to it!
There are a few things I want to mention before we get into the next schedule:
- Remember that this program is for you. You're welcome (and encouraged!) to tailor it to meet your needs. If you need to skip a day, or replace one of the days with another activity you enjoy doing, go for it!
- There have been a few questions about the schedule. The schedule day corresponds to the date. If you're reading this on Monday, April 11th, you'll do Day 11's workout/yoga. But you may notice that Day 11 isn't on this schedule. That's because I want to give our international readers, who are ahead of us, a little head start so they aren't waiting around for me to post. Therefore, each Monday will have the schedule for the Tuesday through the following Monday. I hope that makes sense!
- I'll be posting demos of the HIIT workouts on either the yogabycandace instagram or ybcsneakpeek just in case you're not quite sure what a particular movement looks like, so keep checking there or check this post, where I'll pop the demos in once they're on social media.
- I am loving seeing your pics on instagram! Search the #YBCstrongflow hashtag to see others. :)
