Cats and yoga
Cat’s just along for the ride.
Dance related stuff today. I gotta get my shit together!!
Warm up:A quick warm up, consisting of a couple forward folds, holding downward facing dog for a few breaths, and then doing a little flow between downward facing dog and plank a few times.
-75 Chest Lifts- next time, I think I’ll come up with a challenge to add to these, as they are soo important to continue drilling, but quite easy
-73 Chest Drops- I HATE doing these..I originally only meant to do 50, but wasn’t paying attention and tried to go to 75..I crapped out at 73..lol
-Over 100 Chest Slides- Again, I originally only meant to do so many(50 each side), but I got lost in the music, and the joy I find in doing this particular drill
-60 Chest Circles(30 each direction)- varying speeds and arm positions, as well as with walking
-20ish Rib Cage Figure 8’s- I lost count..I’d venture to say a little over 20..hehe
-20 Undulations (up to down)- I am SO crazy-insecure about these..guess I’ll have to just keep working at them!
-40 Pelvic Locks- LOVE doing these. Traveled, poured myself a glass of water, drank water, traveled back to main practice area..haha :)
-20 Pelvic Drops- also an easy one for me, but I don’t practice them that often.
-30 Hip Lifts (15 per side)- I didn’t spend too much time on these, as I do them ALL the time in my daily life, out of habit..lol
-50 Hip Locks (25 per side)
-60 Umi (30 each direction)- my clockwise umi need some work >.<
- 60 Maya/Taxim (30 each)- varied speeds a lot, focusing extra hard on slower movement
-20 Undulations (down to up)- I hate these, and have a LOT of improving to do!
-50 Hip Locks (on the down)- Only did 25 on each side, because I never use this in my choreography, but would like to stay practiced
-Basic Shimmy- held this without falter for about 30 seconds. poo.
-Shoulder Shimmy- held this without falter for about 15 seconds. more poo.
Cool Down: My cool down consisted of more yoga. This was more extensive than the warm up, including poses that stretched my shoulders, spine, back muscles, hips, sides and legs. Very relaxing. :)
Here’s what I did in more detail..lol
-20 modified push ups
-Shoulder Sequence from Rachel Brice’s Arms and Posture DVD
-Tummy Punches for one minute
-Belly rolls U2D** for one minute
-Belly rolls D2U^^ for one minute
-5 squats each in four different positions(listed in a previous lower body work out)
-Do I really need to explain every stretch I did? Well….if you’re wondering, I focused mainly on the legs, hips, and spine.
Kind of a pansy work out, but a couple days later my pecs are sore and that’s good! See you soon!
Did something today! (Finally, right?) I did upper body, core, lower body, and flexibility. Don’t feel like typing it all out though, as I’m posting from my phone. To.be continued!!!
my lovely pin up dream
0.0 so cute
Today, lower body. Blech. Everything is blech lately!! I guess I just have to find my passion again :/
One minute of each:
Mod. Squats- feet together, on toes
Mod. Squats- staggered feet (both sides)
Basic Side Lying Leg Lifts
Side Lying Internal Leg Lifts(for the inner thigh)
Muhh…i hated it, but I did it. Only 10 minutes. No excuse. Boom.
