If you plan on using this Flow as your workout, we recommend doing it in this order: 1. Begin with the short or long duration Wrist Mobilizations video in the Level 1 Tutorial Section and follow along. 2. Perform 5-10 repetitions of each of the movements that use a High Hip Modified Beast and hold the peak position for 3-5 seconds. These movements are the Levitating Underswitch, Levitating Side Kickthrough and Lateral Traveling Ape (version2). 3. Perform 10-15 repetitions of the remaining movements from the Flow for 1-2 sets 4. Watch this week’s Flow and practice along. 5. Once you feel comfortable with the Flow, continue to practice, alternating sides for your determined workout duration. *We would sugges 20-25 minutes for practicing the entire Flow, however you’ll want to take 1-2 minute rest periods in between rounds. 6. Leave at least 3-5 minutes for an additional round of Wrist Mobilizations.
