Sunrises

I like yoga as a warmup for the dynamic stretching, and also because I like to sneak in a little strength work to start with.

This is also nice little sequence to just get your day started, I used to do these in the morning and stretches at night. You know that I used to have tiny T-Rex arms and used to not be able to do pushups, right? Then Busty and I did six hundred quarter tricep pushups in six weeks together, and then bang, I could knock out ten regular pushups no problem. Then we started this demented pushup challenge at work, which I am winning with 13,448 pushups and four weeks to go. Woot, I need to think of some new challenges and somebodies to do them with.

stand in MOUNTAIN POSE
reach up and FORWARD FOLD
come up part way
walk yourself out to a PLANK
20 QUARTER TRICEP PUSHUPS
lower yourself down to CHATARUNGA
peel yourself up for COBRA
curl your toes under
come up for DOWNWARD FACING DOG
10 WALK THE DOGS
step the right foot between the hands
come up for RIGHT WARRIOR 1
open out for RIGHT WARRIOR 2
return forward, weight on front foot
hinge forward for RIGHT WARRIOR 3
10 RIGHT GOOD MORNINGS
10 RIGHT ELEVATORS
...repeat on the left side
