Don't let this slower pace fool you - this will work up a serious burn in any body! If you have ever taken my class or trained with me, this probably looks pretty familiar to you. That's because I have everyone warm-up with a dynamic movement series like this that gets your body ready to perform by waking up the muscles that offer joint and core stability at the same time as you're improving joint mobility. This could totally be used as a post-workout stretch series too if you slow the pace down and really milk the stretches.
Here's the series:
A. Plank: step each foot outside of & directly beside their respective hands.
B. Keeping hands & feet in that same position, lift your hips, straighten your legs, & press your chest back to stretch your hamstrings.
C. Drop your hips back down to the squat position, then walk your feet back to the plank position.
D. Lift your hips toward the ceiling while at the same time pressing your chest back toward your toes to stretch your shoulder girdles & hamstrings.
*Perform 5-10 reps
**Complete 2-4 sets
***Rest 30-60sec between sets
