What is Animal Flow?
Animal Flow is the new primal workout combining animalistic movements with elements of Parkour, break dancing, and gymnastics in a freestyle flow of fluid movement that is intense but fun! This workout is based around animal movements, which are just like they sound – movements and forms that mimic or resemble different animals, or that are just inspired by the rhythm or nuance of an animal. As the movements are mastered, combined, and incorporated into your workout, they provide an incredible workout!
Why are Animal Movements so great?
Enhanced Workouts: No matter what style of training you prefer, your efforts will be improved upon by increasing your flexibility, agility, strength, power, endurance, coordination and speed. The Animal flow workout will help with all of these!
Athletic Performance: One of the unique aspects of Animal Movement training is that it is multi-planar, meaning that you are moving through multiple planes of motion, rather than in just one like when running in a straight line. Thus, the carryover from Animal Movements into real world sports and athleticism is much greater. As in playing an actual sport, you are teaching your body to coordinate its movements as an entire unit rather than compartmentalizing.
Cardiovascular Training: You can choose how to structure your Animal Flow to achieve different cardio response. You can perform some explosive forms and switches that are very intense and challenge your anaerobic energy system, followed by shorter rest periods. For longer more aerobic results you can link together less demanding forms and switches that can be maintained for longer durations at lower intensities!
Stability: All of the animal movements place the body in a “four Pillar” position which is with hands and feet in contact with the ground. This position allows all of the stabilization systems to be on and coordinating between each other. Everything from the writsts, shoulders, spine, hips and ankles. There is no joint that is left unchallenged!
Mobility/Flexibility: One of the elements that’s most often overlooked in training programs is joint mobility or flexibility. The animal flow workout pushes the body through movements that result in increased mobility and flexibility naturally. Stretching through movement, not isolation.
