Key Points:-all warm-up items should be done with control!  -legs stay straight up with the crunches the whole time! -stay directly on your side for the knee tap kick backs!-keep your knees completely straight with the straddle flutters!-feet squeezed together on the whole body arch ups! -drink your water!

Nutrition Tip:

Water!

It is recommended to drink your body weight in ounces of clean, filtered water per day! Our bodies are made up of about 2/3 water which means we need a constant intake of this liquidy-substance every day (after all, we aren’t camels!) There are many health benefits by drinking water but a few of our favorites are:1. Improves energy levels and immunity 2. Boosts physical performance by improving fatigue, recovery, and energy level3. Clears toxins and fat from the body4. Increases metabolic rate 5. Improves skin clarity, smoothness and softness!

We recommend having a large water bottle (30-50oz) so you only have to refill a couple of times! Using a straw can also help drink more water, faster! Enjoy!
