The bodyweight workouts require only the space of a yoga mat. The workouts are scheduled three days per week - Monday, Wednesday, and Friday - but feel free to jump in wherever you like. Every third workout is designed to use a pull-up bar and box or bench. Please warm up the body with joint mobility or Primal Move exercises to prepare for your workout. Yoga can provide an excellent cross training workout for this programming.
