Day 8

Day 8

“A warrior feeds his body well; he trains it, works on it.  Where he lacks knowledge, he studies.  But above all he must believe.  He must believe in the strength of will, of purpose, of heart and soul.”

David Gemmell

As we complete today’s movement, notice the information the body provides.  Do certain movements feel better than others?  Is there an area of tightness or limited movement that we try to bypass by overworking other muscles?  Does the body feel even from side to side?  Tap into the information your body provides.

Part 1

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

Start by doing 10 reps of lunges and 1 rep of burpees.  Decrease reps of lunges by 1 every round until you perform 1 lunge.  Increase reps of burpees every round until you reach 10 burpees.

Part 2

3 rounds of 20 Russian twists followed by 30 second plank.

Fun for Kids:

Create an actual pyramid – stacking blocks or stuffed animals or cans – as you complete each round of the push-up pyramid.

Pass a stick, toy, or ball between each other as you perform Russian twists.
