    I will create a file / page for yoga progressions & flows created for physical education class & move the poested below to it along with a diiferent created for the same class.  the 1st one posted had a bit more a core/torso focus the second is centered around lower body mobility.

     

    Monday 3/30/2020 Additions

    Good morning,

    I hope you and & your families are doing well. I did add some modifications to some of the metabolic circuits / "cranks" & workouts. there a couple of suggestions for regular workouts that target the core,  legs & primarily upper body Horizontal push. Not knowing who has acces to equipment, those things are easy to program. I mentioned on the exercise suggestions page that I am playing around with the Plt4m site again. It takes me more time to navigate around & get things the way I like it causing me to avoid using it. I will let you know when I have completed something on that page for you to do. As with everything regarding fitness & performance, remember to take what you like & seems appropriate for you from whatever program you use.

    Lastly if you are interested I will be putting some articles to read on exercise & performance on one of the other pages. I am currently re-reading some things on hypertrophy, so they will be added soon. 

    Get out & be acitve for awhile today.  Sitting down & adding to the page gives me some time to think about all of you. I don't say it too often but I really do enjoy seeing ya'll!

     

     

    A few years I had a class of guys who real beauties! Most were athletes & hated working our in class but insisted they would do some sort of yoga flow / routine if I did it with them. So here it is. It is very basic but we all did a few times & for the most part the guys liked it. It is a timed slide show presentation so you watch it in whole. Or leave it alone, it's your choice ! This is still a work in progress & will be edited from time to time.

  • A message from the Cooper Institute of Aerobic Fitness

    Staying active and fit is a critical part of staying healthy. Although many schools and businesses are sending people home, it doesn’t mean that you and your family can’t still be physically active. 

    Instead of spending the next few days or weeks binge-watching TV and playing video games, try finding fun activities to keep the whole family active. Walking, hiking, riding bikes, and playing outside are all fun ways to avoid cabin fever, improve fitness and enjoy quality family time while maintaining a safe “social distance” from others. There are also plenty of fitness classes to stream online to keep everyone busy and active.

    “Our research has shown time and time again that fitness and physical activity improves our overall health and quality of life,” said Dr. Laura DeFina, President, CEO and Chief Science Officer of The Cooper Institute. “This is a great time to focus on our health by making fitness a priority for the whole family.

     

  • Since I added some metabolic type circuits to the page under athletes I figured I would try & do some myself to elevate my heart rate & add some lean muscle, if possible. As a result I will be creating my activity log & putting it on the page as well. I am hoping some of you will log your stuff as well. Do it for fun, think of your own, & remember to appropriately scale it.

    I found the circuits when looking around on the NSCA web site. they are taken form juan Carlos Santana's presentation at a conference. Altough the exercises are not new & the concept has been round for awhile I thought I would use his protocol.

    The platform app. has been posting ideas on a regular basis. I will also incorporate some of their stuff as well.
