Refresh, Renew, Recovery Workout

AND I am back!
This is the first workout video I have filmed since I moved into my new house, and it FELT GOOD!

This workout is to fitness as Organic is to food! It is a great recovery workout that works on flexibility, mobility, and dynamic movement. It is a GREAT workout to do a day after you worked out really hard OR just a workout on its own, as it still has some challenging aspects to it. It also would be good movement prep for a warm up.

What you need:
-A mat

Perform the following reps of each exercise based on your fitness level:

Beginners: 10 reps
Intermediate: 15 reps
Advanced: 20 reps

Here is the breakout of the workout:
-Squat Duck

10 Minute Balance & Cardio Workout

Howdy! So I filmed a new workout this week- 10 Minute Balance & Cardio Workout. And there IS a purpose behind why I choose BALANCE.

I was fortunate enough to go to the Kentucky Derby this past weekend. While I was there, I wore these HUMUNGOUS wedge shoes. Needless to say, walking around the track certainly tested my balance and stability of my ankles. Which brings me to the workout.

What you need:
Stability Ball
Timer
Yourself
