Organic Strength is a 7-Day movement challenge program to build strength organically. In this program we will focus in improve the whole body mobility because mobility is strength. We will start the week’s challenge with the upper body, midsection to lower body. We will use skills from calisthenics, yoga, acrobatics, gymnastics, mixed martial arts and dance.
Every day, starting tomorrow, we will share a video on instagram for you to work on the task of the day.
What the organic strength movement challenge covers is what you need: Resilience. A strong body made by adapting, exploring and contributing; ready to the unknown.
This Monday, December 10th, we start our 7-Day organic strength journey to IMPROVE our body in an organic way.
How strong is our body, if it cannot take life unexpected challenges?
DAY 1 FROG STANCE: Shoulder and core strength
The pike push up is a variation that put an extra stretch in your hamstrings, it focuses more on the shoulders and triceps and it works the upper chest or pectoral in the clavicular part.
Start in all four, wrists, elbows, shoulders aligned and legs parallel to the floor, from here go to downward facing dog.
Prepare to go down by bending your elbows and bring your head to the floor. Repeat this move 10-15 times, rest up to one minute and repeat 4 more times.
From a squat position, place your hands on the floor close to your feet. Place your knees on your biceps or arm pits. Press your knees to your arm and do not let them go.
When your knees are pressing your biceps, move forward and look forward to balance your body and when you are ready, lift one foot and then the other. Repeat several times. I would suggest 15x each leg. Repeat this 3 times.
When you are ready to take the next step and lift the second foot up and balance for 8 breathes. Repeat 5 times.
