Myofascial Rolling (MFR)

5-10 Minutes OK - Beginner Rolling Routine GOOD - Pick the joint/muscle group you need the most help with or that are tender. GREAT - Total Body Sequence PICK THE AREAS THAT ARE MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU. Prioritize tender spots. Everywhere else is optional but highly recommended. If it’s tender, it needs it. Work on the edge of your comfort zone; it should be tolerable, not torture. With time and practice, you’ll be able to do the entire sequence quickly. Use a Foam Roller, Massage Stick, Massage Ball, or Massage Gun. Spend 20-30 seconds per area. For areas needing extra attention, 60 seconds is ideal.

Warmup 4

5-15 minutes OK - Before each exercise, do one set with bodyweight or ~50% of working weight for 10 reps, (i.e., if you are squatting 100 lbs, warm up with 50 lbs). You may also do the core or conditioning finisher or first block of exercises as a warmup. GOOD - Quick Warmup GREAT - Full Warmup REPS 30s or 10 reps per exercise. Tip: Perform each exercise one time for 30 seconds, per side when applicable. If static (not-moving), hold for time. If dynamic (moving), perform for reps; 3 challenging reps, 5 good reps, or 10 easy reps. No matter how many reps you do, it should still last about 30 seconds.

Cool Down

- Foam roll for 2 to 5 minutes to significantly lessen soreness. - Stretch for 2 to 5 minutes, so you don't feel stiff later. - Eat something within the next hour or drink a protein shake. - Take 5g of creatine (even if you've already taken some today): https://s.thorne.com/HYTTc (ask me for 20% off) - Sleep 7 to 9 hours. OK Sit on the ground for a couple of minutes and take deep breaths through your nose. GOOD After a workout, do some of the same rolling from the warmup. 5 minutes is optimal, but more or less is good too. This will reduce stiff and sore muscles. Eat a meal or drink a protein shake within the next hour. GREAT Better results happen with rest. Rest is when your body can repair and recover from today's workout. We recommended doing some rolling and some stretches from the warmup. Pick the areas you feel you worked the most or the stretches you need most.

Core Finisher - MA4 Day 1

CORE FINISHER Week 1 - 3x20:5 (20 seconds of work, 5 seconds of rest) Core Finisher 7 (Intermediate) Crunch - Scissor Crunch - Bicycle V Up - Single Leg, Alternating Crunch - Triangle Crunch - Side Core Finisher 13 (Advanced) Side Kick Thru Knee Grab Sit Up with Reach Plank Up Downs V Up Core Finisher 1 (Beginner) Bodyweight Crunch Crunch - Bicycle Toe Touch Crunch Side Crunch You can do core finishers for reps or for time. This is for conditioning, so challenge yourself and expect to reach failure. TIME-BASED Do as many reps as possible within the time. Week 1 - 3x20:5 (20 seconds of work, 5 seconds of rest) Week 2 - 3x25:5 (25 seconds of work, 5 seconds of rest) Week 3 - 3x30:5 (30 seconds of work, 5 seconds of rest) Week 4 - 3x40:5 (30 seconds of work, 5 seconds of rest) REP-BASED Week 1 - 3x8 or 16 reps Week 2 - 3x10 or 20 reps Week 3 - 3x12 or 24 reps Week 4 - 3x14 or 30 reps Per side, if applicable, and able. Applies to time-based and rep-based. HOW TO DO CIRCUITS Do each exercise in succession; that’s one round. For example, Exercise 1, then Exercise 2, then Exercise 3, etc. Rest and repeat for multiple rounds. You could complete all rounds of one exercise at a time as an alternative; it doesn’t matter that much. Try both ways. If you need more rest, take it, as long as you do a little more than you’re used to. Why? Circuits will challenge your aerobic and muscular endurance. In other words, work fast, rest little. Weights used, if any, should be challenging but allow you to complete the reps in a timely manner. Maintain proper form at all times.

TIP BEFORE LIFTING HEAVY: Do one set with bodyweight or ~50% of working weight for 10 reps, (i.e., if you are squatting 100 lbs, warm up with 50 lbs). This boosts your performance and reduces your risk of injury. >>> Learn more about warmups: https://modernathletics.com/courses/foundations/lessons/quickstart/topic/warmups-mobility-and-stretching/

Recovery

F

Cool Down

- Foam roll for 2 to 5 minutes to significantly lessen soreness. - Stretch for 2 to 5 minutes, so you don't feel stiff later. - 🍽 Eat something within the next hour or drink a protein shake. - Take 5g of creatine (even if you've already taken some today): https://s.thorne.com/HYTTc (ask me for 20% off) - 😴 Sleep 7 to 9 hours. OK Sit on the ground for a couple of minutes and take deep breaths through your nose. GOOD After a workout, do some of the same rolling from the warmup. 5 minutes is optimal, but more or less is good too. This will reduce stiff and sore muscles. Eat a meal or drink a protein shake within the next hour. GREAT Better results happen with rest. Rest is when your body can repair and recover from today's workout. We recommended doing some rolling and some stretches from the warmup. Pick the areas you feel you worked the most or the stretches you need most.
