sylph gets back to basics

There is quite a sturdy rumor that my circus gym will be re-opening some time in July. I've been in and out of a fitness-funk for the last 8 months while they've been closed/relocating so it's time to see if I can be in some kind of decent shape once I can get back to class.

 

Lift weights

My old faithful push/pull/legs split

3x/week, please!

15 workouts total

 

Core progressions

So much about being in the air is reliant on core strength. I am sure mine is not where it was 8 months ago, so lets work on that.

Hollow body holds, floor tucks (no idea what to call these, really, but it's mimicking an aerial inversion on the ground) and maybe the ab wheel will be the cornerstone of this work. 

2x/week

10 core sessions

 

Stretch

When I don't have class, I am terrible at this. I think I can count on one hand the times I've had any kind of stretching session since November. Sigh. Setting the bar low, here.

1x/week

5 stretch sessions

 

Sun salutations

A few challenges back, I made an effort to start each day with a few (5-ish) sun salutations. I quite liked it, really and I'd like to get back to it. With a little room for error/forgetfulness.

5x/week 

25 mornings of greeting the sun

 

 

No theme, no fancy formatting, no distractions.

Just work.

Oh, I sure hope so. It's been really tied to my fitness mojo.
