Countdown to Change: Dynamic Workout

This week, your YouCoach will be focusing on teaching more dynamic movements, as well as exploring work capacity by pushing the limits further during sets. Try this YouCoach- approved Boot camp exercise during your next workout and see how far you can go!

Warm up

For 5 minutes, perform 5-6 dynamic stretches (Aka mobilizers) such as alternating toe touches, arm circles then move into low intensity bodyweight cardio moves like inchworms, butt kicks, high knees, jumping jacks, air squats etc. Keep consistency in the warm-up but add a bit of variety each time.
