Get in to the flow
By: Michael Winter

With so many varied and varied fitness styles and programs around, it can be easy to jump on each and every one of them and go crazy with excitement.

Bu I have found something which balances what Alive Personal Training values and believes in with what we want to deliver.

With all the training tools we use and the ethos which we follow this program rounds this all off. I will be qualifying to instruct this and I am excited to do so. It is Animal Flow.

Animal Flow is an innovative fitness program that combines quadrupedal and ground-based movement with elements from various bodyweight-training disciplines to create a fun, challenging workout emphasising multi-planar, fluid movement.

Animal Flow is the ultimate versatile workout that makes a great addition to your current programs. Animal Flow is the ultimate versatile workout that makes a great addition to any fitness professionals’ arsenal of movement tools. Designed to work in a variety of formats, the program is great as a stand-alone workout or as a component of an existing training routine. Use one, some, or all of Animal Flow’s six components to meet your specific goals.
Animal Flow includes a wide range of exercises and movement combinations that are grouped into six components, each designed to elicit specific results. The six components can be mixed and matched in many ways, and you can incorporate one, some, or all of them in your workouts! The six components include:
Wrist Mobilisations include a range of simple exercises designed to increase the flexibility and strength of your wrists, which is particularly important for any practice where you are spending a lot of time on your hands.

Activations are static holds we perform to connect the body before we start our practice. Examples include: Static Beast Hold, Static Crab Hold, and Limb Lifts

Form Specific Stretches are full body stretches that start in an animal form and then move through a wide range of motion. This increases your mobility and flexibility throughout the entire body. Examples include the Ape Reach, Beast Reach, Crab Reach and Scorpion Reach.

Traveling Forms are exercises that mimic the movements of animals. You’ll start with the “ABCs” – Ape, Beast and Crab – to get you going on these full body conditioning moves. The traveling forms are essentially how we move like animals to improve the function of the human animal.

Switches are dynamic movements that we perform one after the other, creating the “flow” of Animal Flow. You can transfer from one form to another, or repeat the same one as a drill. Examples include the many variations for Underswitches, Side Kickthroughs, Front Kickthroughs, and Scorpions.

Flow: Your Flow is where the real magic happens. You’ll combine the Animal Flow moves by linking them together in a fluid sequence, seamlessly transferring energy from one move to the next. Flows may be a choreographed sequence practiced over multiple sessions, or may be created freestyle! Have a look at www.animalflow.com or search it on youtube to see it in action.
It will be upon you all soon! Alive PT will be bringing to the people.
