1. What is body balance?

My definition of body balance is a system that ensures that no stone is left unturned as far as the health of your body is concerned. It could be summarised by the following equation:

1.1. Strong body + Flexibility + Focused Breathing = Body Balance

Sometimes people who are engaged in flexible activities such as Yoga asanas don’t necessarily develop a strong body. They are just happy to let their body sink into the flow of the yoga activities. This is fine, but could be improved.
On the other hand, you have people who can lift tones of weight but who can’t lift their own arms.
The third type of people you can encounter are those who struggle with everything they do because they have not learned a very simple trick. To breath properly and in synch with whatever activities they might be doing. Maybe you experienced this yourself, like when you tried to do something new like a forward bend or a few extra set of push-ups. Your breathing alone can almost derail you. It becomes irregular, jerky and fast.

What I am proposing to you is the merging of a strong body with a flexible one, accompanied by a regulated breathing. But unlike a pure gym work-out or yoga session, we will melt all the 3 areas together so that they reflect a “functional” body balance.

2. What is it good for?

It makes sense to wonder why delving into body balance. Well, a few reasons list as follow:

✅ Physical strength – trust me. You might end-up missing your gym days

✅ Coordination – See your body as a malleable substance you can use in different way depending on the situation

✅ Flexibility – Be able to explore new dimensions with your body

✅ Positive mental attitude – Understand what’s your drive in this 48days challenge means for your attitude toward life

✅ Regulated breathing – Have more mastery over your body and your mind by “capturing” your breath inside the movements you undertake.

✅ Getting rid of physical ailments – That’s one of the unsuspected benefits of a body balance program. Sometimes, by doing some tiny exercises that don’t look the part, you can eradicate some health issues. 

3. How often should I do Body Balance?

It really depends on your goals, but I would suggest a minimum of 3 times a week. For some reason the number 3 seems to be a magical one when it comes to providing results. Some people suggest once a week. I frankly do not know of anything you can do at that frequency which can yield tangible results. My program is a 48 days challenge that you can do in 90 days instead (in effect doing it 3 times a week). I assume you might want to finish something challenging that you can be proud of, know you went through it and can now rip the benefits. 

4. Is it good for beginners?

Absolutely. Actually, my 48days body balance challenge target everyone who want to enter the grind at their own pace. The key challenge is not really the physical exercises you will do, but the mental toughness it takes to stick to doing something repetitive for 1month and half. There are phases you will not like, where you will want to give-up. But I will support you in spirit because I went through it myself. And if ever you drop me an email, I might even support you directly.

5. Is Body Balance good to lose weight?

Because the exercises have a certain level of intensity, body balance will definitely help you lose weight. But that’s not all. Along the way, you will learn how to get flexible and how to tone your muscles.

6. Body balance exercises

As with my previous posts of flexibility work-out or conditioning, I follow a structured pattern that is aimed at avoiding any issues that can prevent you from practice over the long term.
 
We will first star-up with a functional warm-up, then move to the exercises themselves and finish out with a recovery phase. 

The perfect body balance routine cycle

6.1. Heat-up: 5-10 minutes

This phase is absolutely crucial if you want to see progress in your efforts. Sometimes people wrongly assume that flexibility stretches are warm-up. That’s wrong. So don’t go out trying to do a split or back bend out cold. Instead, in my heat-up I try to bring heat as safely as possible to your body.
 
Next is the body balance part

6.2. Body balance program

➡️ Conditioning: 10 minutes

This part is used to increase strength in your body and tone your muscle. This is a 48 days challenge, so don’t worry if at first these look difficult. We will work on your quadriceps, triceps, core. You will be introduced to what I call “Little Infernos” …Small unassuming exercises that will make you yell a little. But not to worry, after a while it will be all in the bag for you.

➡️ Flexibility: 20 minutes

We have hardened the body. Now let’s soften it to create that ideal body balance we are after. We will work on your hamstrings, gluteus, deltoid, spine, latissimus dorsi.

6.3. Recovery: 5-10 minutes

After these intensive efforts, we will create the perfect landing so that your whole body balance journey feel safe and well planned. The first part will be to control our breath while lying down on our back. The second part will be breathing exercises that are great for your overall body balance philosophy. As you probably observed when you did the body balance program, your breathing at some point became fast, jerky, uneven. What we want to achieve with these breathing techniques is a way for you to “trap” you breath in your exercises, so that a certain stillness and clam perdure when you execute these activities.
