Arms & Abs, Full Body, FLOW

Instructor: Kristine Chaussard
Level: Intermediate

Focus :   

Arms & abs are our focus in today’s second video of FLOW. This is full body integration in each and every exercise while we highlight strengthening our upper body and moving our spine in every direction. Psst.. your legs and booty will get some love at the end as well, so stay with me all the way till the end! 😉

Welcome to FLOW! I am inviting you to join me in my own personal movement sessions. Just a reminder: these sessions are a quiet time! Time to tune into your body, your breath and your center. I won’t be talking or teaching! The exercises will be posted up in the video so keep watching to see what is next. Likewise you’ll have spring suggestions. Remember these are suggestions. Feel free to modify as you need. Learn what best suits your body and go with it!

Enjoy moving to the birds’ songs🌿. Use this time to center in and tune out everything else.

👇Drop us comments below each flow. How did you enjoy class? Did you complete your workout?! Any questions? Encourage other Adventurers also!

Equipment Needed :     

Reformer only.

Class Level :     

Intermediate level shown. A very few exercises may be more advanced. If you are a brand new beginner, I suggest starting with our Beginner program first and then our Classical Reformer program to familiarize yourself with the exercises. Then return and join us in this Flow. 👍

The Course of this Class :   

Starting with one of my favorites: tricep push ups with arabesque. I love it for both the stretch and hip openness as well as the assist for a tough push up otherwise. An entire series of exercises facing back on the Reformer working our upper back, shoulders and arms, spine extension and plenty of planks for solid abs leads us into a side series. You’ll strengthen your adductors, abductors, obliques, and much more! But you aren’t finished yet! Hang with me for more planks, setting in that ab connection and challenge. Then yes, we’ll sit it down to finish off with some more opening exercises albeit full body integration. I don’t want to give away the whole arms & abs flow, but I’ll say, join me and decide for yourself! You’ll finish class worked head to toe.

Class pace is moderate and fluid.

Goals :     

Stronger arms, shoulders, upper back, and abs. Stronger overall body and finding and using that strength in compound, full body exercises. Class with little interruption, changes and stops. Full body workout. Better plank performance. Stronger wrists. Move fluidly and from core outward. Improve and maintain healthy function and range of movement, mobility and flexibility in spine and shoulders. Meditative practice.
