This is a quick workout that will help you build overall strength in your whole body. It only lasts 6 minutes, which is not an effective workout if only done once a day, but if you do it multiple times during the day, or repeat the workout in rounds, then it can be very effective! Check it out. Most of these poses* can be found in my eBook, which you can purchase here.
The workout starts being about 6 minutes long, but you can increase the duration of the poses to make it more difficult and last longer. I recommend that you try to progress to longer times as you do the workout over and over, so that you get stronger!
Squat hold – (30 seconds – 60 seconds)
Plank (30 seconds) -> Low plank (15 – 30 seconds)
Cobra (15 seconds)
Downdog (30 seconds – 60 seconds)
Downdog knee to nose, knee to elbow (hold for one breath)
This workout is fantastic for building strength while also challenging flexibility and range of motion. You may need to use a few warm-up poses to be able to do this effectively, but as long as you are not feeling pain in your body when you are doing this (remember – pain and fatigue are different things), then go for it.
*The knee to nose movement from downdog and the low plank are not in the eBook.
