Welcome to Day 2 of our 3 Day Flexibility Challenge! Today's workout involves Pilates and yoga exercises that encourage and increase range of motion. This is a total body flexibility workout that also offers some toning benefits; you will be able to tell that your muscles are working (especially your core) as you work your way through this routine.
The exercises in this particular workout are excellent for core strength and back health. Put on some comfortable clothes and get ready for a relaxing toning and stretching blend.
The structure of this 3 Day Stretching Challenge very closely mimics our 4 Week FBReach Program for Flexibility, Range of Motion & Toning. Be sure to check out this program if you want 4 weeks of workouts that use this training style!
