This workout was submitted by roster Michael Welborn of the Green Country Ruckers in Tulsa, OK. Enjoy! 


Three full rounds of a short yoga flow: take a deep breath in while standing, exhale to forward fold, inhale as you walk hands forward to plank, exhale in plank, inhale as you lift hips for downward dog, hold for one round of breath, exhale as you drop hips to plank, three breaths in plank.

Inhale as you step your right foot forward for a low runners lunge, right knee directly over right ankle. Keep your left hand on the ground and lift your right hand toward the sky for a twist, hold for one breath. Place both hands on the ground and step right foot back to plank.

Inhale as you step your left foot forward for a low runners lunge and then into a twist with right hand down and left hand reaching to the sky, hold for one breath. Place both hands on the ground and step left foot back to plank. Exhale as you walk your hands back to forward fold, inhale to standing. Repeat two more times.
