Daily Practice for 16 Jul 18

Strength and Conditioning:

Combo #1

3 rounds of:

  • Floor Press X 15 each side.  If you don’t have dumbbells or kettlebells, use your exercise bands and just alternate pressing one arm then the other.
  • Mobility Burpee X 10.  This is a standard Burpee except you come down into a Yoga Squat rather than just dropping down and jumping back.  After the Push Up, as you jump forward, come back into the Yoga Squat.
  • Forearm Plank X 1:00.  More advanced can do single leg version, alternating every 15 seconds.
  • Rest as needed.

Combo #2:

2 – 3 rounds (depending on how you feel) of:

  • 1 round of the “Leg Blaster”.  The Leg Blaster consists of:
    • Air Squat X 10
    • Lunge X 5 each leg
    • Jumping Lunge X 5 each leg
    • Jump Squat X 10
  • Kneeling Curl and Press X 15.  Again, you can sub this using a band if you kneel on the band.  Taking the legs wider will make it more challenging as it increases band tension!
  • Boat Pose Hold X 1:00.  If you can’t go the full minute, scale back to what you can do.
  • Rest as needed.

Yoga:

Perform 15 – 20 minutes of dedicated yoga postures or attend a class.  Join me at My House Fitness in Avon for my 6:00 – 7:00pm class!

Daily Practice for 12 Jul 18

Early morning meditation session for 10:00 followed by Journaling X 10:00.  In your journaling time, just free flow and write whatever comes to your heart and mind.  Step back from wanting to control what you write or from filtering what you write.  Just flow…

Cardio – activity of your choice X 30 minutes at a moderate pace.  Something you can sustain without stopping, yet it’s challenging.  Think of a solid “6-7” on a RPE scale of 1 – 10.

Spend at least 5:00 on stretching, mobility work, or foam rolling.  Don’t think you have time in your day?  Do this while you are watching TV, first thing in the morning (just before your meditation session), or before getting into bed.  Just get it done!

Daily Practice: 03 Jul 18

Not sure how to meditate?  Not sure how to do some of the movements?  Hit me up!  I am happy to offer guidance and support.  Email me (chris@bridgingthewellnessgap.com), or post a comment below.

Early A.M. meditation:  Spend a minimum of 10:00 meditating and a minimum of 5:00 journaling.  Do this first thing in the morning.  Yes, you can set your alarm 15:00 earlier and get this done.  Make it happen!

Cardio:

5 rounds of:

  • Cardio activity of choice X :90
  • Rest X :90

Your score = shortest distance traveled in a round.  For example, if you run, and you cover 500 meters in round 1 through 3, then you cover 450 meters in round 4 and 400 meters in round 5 – your “score” would be 400 meters.

Post your results!

Yoga:  Minimum 10:00 of Yoga, mobility, stretching, foam rolling.  Or, join me for Hot Vinyasa Flow at Cityoga!  5:45-7:00pm.
