Add fun and variety to your home or gym workouts with these 12 Animal Flow Exercises. The animal flow system uses your own body weight to challenge and improve core strength, mobility, stability, and even get the heart rate up ! - No equipment required.
This video reviews 12 Animal Flow forms that can be applied in many different ways. It can be used as a stand alone workout, added to your current training, used as a dynamic workout, or as mobility session to help unwind tight muscles. Developed by Mike Fitch, the Animal Flow system is designed to add diversity and fun to your training program while improving function.
Like anything thats a new challenge to the body, they key is to slowly progress at your own pace, your body will adapt and get stronger as long as you are consistent and safely work within your capacity . Start by practicing each of the forms individually, once you are comfortable with the exercises, group them together in a flowing sequence. Be creative and make up your own flows, have FUN with it ! There is no wrong way to flow, just maintain control of each movement and maintain postural alignment.
I would also recommend spending some time warming up and mobilizing the wrists and feet before starting.
