The last week of our 30 Day Strong Flow Program is finally here! I hope you are feeling incredible and are feeling strong and seeing results in the pose you chose. If you'd like to work with James on your diet and nutrition, fill out the form at the bottom of this page. If not, let's hop to it!
Remember that the schedule day corresponds to the date, so today's schedule can be found here (we do this so our international peeps who are ahead of us can stay on track).
Pause vid in the middle and spend 3-5 minutes working on baby grasshopper (beginners), or regular grasshopper (more advanced), followed by 3-5 minutes working on your chosen pose. Then resume the video.
10 Air Squats
For this hiit workout you will do 10 push-ups, 10 sit-ups and 10 air squats and that will make one full round. Then you repeat nine more times. Remember that you're invited to tailor it to your needs. If ten rounds isn't happening for you, scale it back and do eight or five or even three. And if you choose to scale it back, you're not allowed to be angry or frustrated with yourself. That's rule number one and I'm strictly enforcing it! No, in all seriousness, if you need to scale back, who cares? Apply your lessons of yoga to your hiit workouts and remove your ego from the situation. Do you best and let that be enough.
Day 21: Rest Day
Pause vid in the middle and spend 3-5 minutes practicing your chosen pose. Share on instagram with #YBCstrongflow.
5 - 10 deep breaths in each pose
Spend 2 - 5 minutes working on shoulder taps. (Beginners do it in a plank position, not handstand.)
Spend 4 - 7 minutes working on your chosen pose.
5 minute reclining cobbler’s pose.
10 Dive Bomber Push-ups
10 Planked Shoulder Taps
For this, you'll do 10 dive bomber push-ups, 10 planked shoulder taps and 10 burpees and that will be one full round. You'll follow it up with nine more, or you'll scale it back and do however many rounds is right for you.
Meditation: Exclusive App Subscribers listen to the quote from February 9, 2016. Then, sit in silent meditation for 3 more minutes. Everyone else, find a quote you are inspired by. Read it through twice and then sit in 6 minute silent meditation.
*Add one rep each week until failure
For this hiit workout, you will look at the clock and when minute one starts, do one burpee and rest for the remaining time. Then, when minute two starts, you'll do two burpees and rest for the remaining time. When minute three starts, you'll do three burpees and rest for the remaining time. Then you'll keep moving through the time like this until you can't get through the burpees in the allotted time.
Day 28: Rest Day
M2-:30 HS Hold
For this hiit workout you'll look at the clock and when your first minute starts you'll do 12 burpees and rest for the remainder of the minute. Then, when minute two starts, you'll do a 30 second handstand hold and rest for the remaining 30 seconds. When minute three starts, you'll do 12 burpees and rest for the remainder of the minute and when minute four starts, you'll do a 30 second handstand hold and rest for the remaining 30 seconds. You'll continue like that for ten minutes (or scale it back as needed.) When you're done, share on instagram by tagging me and James and let us know how you did.
