 BodyRock Flow:

BodyRock Flow Workout Video:

Pose 1: Downward Dog:

- Straighten your elbows
– Lift your sitting bones
– Align you upper arms with your ears
– Keep spine long
– Reach through your heals
* If your hamstrings are “tight,” and your low back rounds, bend your knees a little. And, don’t worry about your heals touching the floor…they can hover:) Just think of reaching…it will happen:)
* For this “fit test” or “flex test,” notice if you feel tightness in your shoulders  / hamstrings, or, if perhaps your collapsing into your lower back or shoulders



Pose 2: Pigeon:

- If you need to, support your front hip with a blanket or small pillow (so that you can relax / be comfortable). In other words, prop the pose so that there is no space between your hip and the floor.
– Try to keep your hips square, with your extended leg thigh resting on the floor.
– Fold forward, can you bring your forehead to rest on the floor?
* For this “fit test” or “flex test,” take note of whether or not your front hip touches the floor. Did you need to use a prop? (it can often be different from side to side too, so note this:)
* Also notice if you are able to keep your hips square, or if for example, your extended leg hip is drawing back. Notice how far forward you can fold over your front thigh / leg, if you are far from the floor, you could put another pillow / blanket across your lap. Remember, the idea is to relax into these postures, to connect with the breath, and essentially… to take your breath to the places you want to release. Don’t push, instead, allow the tension to melt into your mat.
* Knee injury? Careful. Make sure the knees don’t complain!


Pose 3: Dangling:

- This is an intense stretch for the back of the legs and a gentle release for the lower spine
– If you have a “bad back” (first of all it’s not “bad”, but you know what I mean), anyway, just bend your knees:)
* For this fit test, notice how much you have to bend your knees in the pose, a lot or just slightly? As you increase your flexibility, straighten your legs more.
* Notice too how far you are “dangling” from the floor, are your hands dangling above your knees, at your knees, at your ankles?
* Breathe normally, try for 2 minutes at a time.
* High blood pressure? Avoid. Low blood pressure? Come out of the pose very slowly.


Pose 4: Standing Back Bend:

- Bring your arms up over your head, interlace your fingers, release your index fingers, cross your thumbs.
– Squeeze your inner thighs (firm your legs). Squeeze / contract your glutes ( this offers support for your lower back).
– Relax your head back, take a deep Inhale, and then stretch up out of your waist / low spine. Breathing normally (in and out through the nose), start to reach back (draw your arms back with your ears as much as you can).
* Notice, for this test, how far back down your wall you can see. Are you comfortable dropping your head back? Are you breathing normally? If not, you are going back too far.  Are you able to keep your legs strong? If not, your going back to far:) Don’t worry about depth, breathe, and keep lifting out of your low spine while pulling your arms back (this way you will be backward-bending with your whole spine, not just using the most flexible part / collapsing).

    I just started here, I’ve been lurking for a while. Starting my third week of exercising, which is a huge step for me! I’m a beginner, obviously, and though I haven’t lost any weight I feel better about myself already. The fact that I’m trying to love my body and give it the respect it deserves helps a lot. Thank you all for your hard work and devotion!

    I am LOVING the Yoga. It helps me remember to slow down and relax. And the stretching makes my body feel much more energized.

    dear sim.kus

    let me explain to you how Disqus works, since you are not signed on to it.  when you belong to Disqus, people who reply to you show up in your dashboard.  so when someone responds to you or asks you a question it shows up there, you do not even need to be on this particular site just any site which uses Disqus.  Apparantly you did not notice that Amanda wished to know where she was doing it, it would have been impolite for Gerri Lee to not answer her.

    I find it amazing that you felt it necessary for your second ever comment here to be one such as this – negative, whereas you seem to be telling Gerri Lee to not be negative.  Gerri Lee was giving us, her friends here a positive message that she was happy,  and I think there is nothing wrong with that!

    But I am sure this is all probably lost on you as you never bothered to sign on to Disqus so this message will not show up in your dashboard!

    have a great, positive day!

  • Gerri Lee Schafer

    no need to reply to this..you pegged your self…cheers

  • Eli

    I did better than last time!
    My scores were either higher or more consistent then day one. Here are my new scores.
    1) Squat & Press – Using 6kg bag 33, 30, 34 (previous best 32)

    2) Push-Up & Clean & Press – Using 6kg bag. 9.5, 10, 9.5 (previous best 9)
    3) Elevated Tricep Dips 28, 26, 26 (previous best 26)

    4) Elevated Knee Abs 25, 23, 25 (previous best 23)

    Got in a bit of sculpt for my self.
    1. Bent over row + one leg dead lift alternating legs. 14
    2. shoulder press than twisting body L or R alternating. 10
    3. lawnmower right arm
    4. lawnmower left arm
    5. round the world

    Flow felt great. I have been doing these stretches after my workouts most of the time any way and I add other too.
    Downward dog was nice and relaxing. My heels were down flat this time and my back didnt feel tight.
    Pigeon was also nice, my hip felt great in the stretch (not too tight) and I just breathed and relaxed into the pose.
    Dangling felt a bit tight in my right hamstring more than the left. I didn’t feel as released as I have felt in the past in this pose today.

    Standing back bend is still a tough one for me because the arms go back with the body. My sternum cracks every so often when bend the top part of my back backward, so I know my chest is a tight place.
    See you tomorrow.

    Question regarding “flow”: 
    I have some yoga experience, but I struggle with the intensity of the backbends. I can’t quite get all the way into a backbend yet, I’m somewhere in the middle so I have a hard time with reaching a “stopping point” without losing balance and find myself falling over. What are your recommendations to move through that sticking point where the pose is at the perfect “outside my comfort zone” stretch but yet it pushes me off balance?  How do I build the strength in my core if I keep falling out of the pose when I get there?

    Had a look at your blog last night and really like your posts – I did one of the Ekhart yoga workouts you posted after my bodyrocking and it was great! Now subscribed to you both :)

    They have said that there is some moving or something going on so that tuesday’s and thursday’ workouts might only be posted if they have time, so if they are not posted go ahead and pick another workout.  did you check their revised may schedule?

    but there is a good 600 plus workouts here I’m sure you could find something!

  • Brittany Verner

    Sooooo I improved in each exercise!!!!!! And this is after a 48 minute bike ride….I’m feeling very proud of myself and grateful for this site. I am just starting to see definition in my body. My diet is still a work in progress though. My actual meals are a lot healthier; however, I am still struggling to stay away from cookies. So far I have just been able to stay away from cookies for only about half the week. It’s still a work in progress though. I also have only had pop twice since starting the 30 day program, which is also a huge progress from the one pop a day that I was doing! Anyway, Here are my scores. The old ones are in parentheses. 

    Intermediate Fit Test Body Weight Only
    Squat Jump & 1/2 Burpee: 20, 20, 15 (19, 17, 15)
    Superman Pushups: 15, 12, 10 (9, 10, 9)
    Elevated Tricep Dips: 18, 20, 16 (12, 16, 16)
    Elevated Knee Abs: 19, 17, 15 (14, 15, 17)

    Hey Portia,
    Don’t give up hope! There are SOOO many factors contributing to your workout.  Now, I’m not a personal trainer at all, and I don’t know what people do normally with fit tests, but I think 2 weeks is WAAAAY too short a time to really get a reading.  I think it’s great after 30 days, but in only 2 weeks your body is still adjusting heavily to the workout regimin.  That means you’re probably sore, you may be tired, and your body is doing a lot to repair itself and get itself up to speed, meaning it’s very possible you may not do better after 2 weeks (you may even do worse–it’s happened to me).  I’ve also noticed that the time of day I work out matters a LOT, along with what I’ve eaten that day and how long since I last ate, if I drank the day before, and the temperature.  Sometimes I’ll do a workout and it’s the hardest thing ever and then I’ll do it again the following week and it’s easy, or vice versa.  Our bodies change and are at different levels of competence for athletic performance all the time, so it’s natural that your results would change too.

    Lisa’s got loads of great diet ideas–I don’t personally agree with all of them, but the basic rules are good–balance, lots of veggies and fruit, lots of color and variety.  Stay as basic as you can.  I know what it’s like to be in college and eating whatever you can afford, but you can make bad or good choices there, too.  If you’re buying things out of a box, buy things with no or little added sugar, no preservatives and as little ingredients as possible.  When I’m low on cash I’ll make a pot of “grub” with a bunch of beans and rice, spices, maybe some canned tomato, onion or whatever I have on hand.  Be creative!  

    Good luck!  Don’t be discouraged.  It will probably take at least 30 days to have noticeable improvement.  But keep with it and it will come–I promise!

    hey guys!

    since the knockout summer body workout reminded me so much of the old wicked things workout, I decided to do that one today!  last time I did it I only made it through 1 round in over 17 minutes, today I did both rounds in 24 min! http://www.bodyrock.tv/2011/09/19/wicked-things-workout/

    Don’t worry about it Portia!  It has only been two weeks!  this is the down side of always hyping everything up!  not everyone improves in leaps and bounds, and smashes their scores, and drops 20lbs in an instant!  what is important is that you are doing the program, you are moving and working hard!  also your form could have been better this time or you got a little lower.  how are you feeling? better, stronger, tighter, happier, more confident?  scores are not always that important!

    I love this site! I am so happy to know that I don’t have to kill myself with hour long workouts everyday. I’m working this 30 day challenge and loving it. There are soooo many videos on the site so I will never be bored. Thanks BR gang.

    Hello everyone,
    can someone tell me where can i find Lisas scores for the workouts? thanks!

  • Cricketdocs

    the reps depend on your fitness level and what you are able to do in the time alloted. you don’t need an interval timer, though. i just use a clock with a second hand.

    Yeah I miss them posting scores–I also miss them encouraging US to post our scores. Also, when they started making so many videos I noticed that they only showed LM going through one round…pretty much made me think that she doesn’t actually finish the workouts.  I just accepted it and think of the site more of instructional rather than as a blog/vlog, but I miss that “we’re in this together” aspect.  Because that’s what’s fun, isn’t it? That’s why we post–to share with each other what workout or workouts we do each day.

    I’m confused, once you start doing the daily workouts, do you have to do everything three times through or just once??

    Has anyone tried doing a little bit of exercise every hour? I work a 12 hour shift and i have the freedom to try that during my 4 day workweek. If you have tried it, how was it for you, and do you have any recommendations?

  • http://www.facebook.com/kendra.oberhauser Kendra Lee Oberhauser

    I fully agree.  I love mash-ups, but I like it more when they are well thought out and pull exercises from a ton of different workouts–not just the past week’s.  And I would totally rather have a great workout twice a week than a workout every day that sometimes isn’t very good.  
    A big difference–which is okay, but I find it more difficult to maneuver–is that BodyRock is putting a lot of focus on branding and on the whole product, and less on the workouts.  And by that I don’t mean that the workouts aren’t good– many are still great–but they all LOOK THE SAME.  Each post and each workout used to be unique.  There would be unique photos for that workout, and the workout wasn’t ALWAYS 12 rounds of 10&50.  Also, the name of the workout is different from the name of the video–makes it totally confusing.  And the photos are recycled again and again.

    BodyRock is changing, and that’s okay.  It seems like it’s putting more of its focus on GETTING more followers than RETAINING those it already has.  I’m seeing old names on here less and less.  Lisa Marie is totally inspiring, but I don’t need to be inspired to work out–although some people do, and find that really helpful.  I prefer someone who’s more–like you said–laid back and on my wavelength. So it’s changing into something that I find resonates with me less as a home, as a community.  But I’ll still be here as long as the workouts are great.

    I fully agree.  I love mash-ups, but I like it more when they are well thought out and pull exercises from a ton of different workouts–not just the past week’s.  And I would totally rather have a great workout twice a week than a workout every day that sometimes isn’t very good.  
    A big difference–which is okay, but I find it more difficult to maneuver–is that BodyRock is putting a lot of focus on branding and on the whole product, and less on the workouts.  And by that I don’t mean that the workouts aren’t good– many are still great–but they all LOOK THE SAME.  Each post and each workout used to be unique.  There would be unique photos for that workout, and the workout wasn’t ALWAYS 12 rounds of 10&50.  Also, the name of the workout is different from the name of the video–makes it totally confusing.  And the photos are recycled again and again.

    BodyRock is changing, and that’s okay.  It seems like it’s putting more of its focus on GETTING more followers than RETAINING those it already has.  I’m seeing old names on here less and less.  Lisa Marie is totally inspiring, but I don’t need to be inspired to work out–although some people do, and find that really helpful.  I prefer someone who’s more–like you said–laid back and on my wavelength. So it’s changing into something that I find resonates with me less as a home, as a community.  But I’ll still be here as long as the workouts are great.

    I am in the same boat as you with a bum wrist. Here are some I’ve looked out. Hands free workout, what’s my name from July 14/11, and super bass from July 22/11. (you could sub skipping for the burpee round in super bass) I also found a few leg challenges in Jan 2011 if you have the time to look through them. Can you put any pressure on it? I cannot put my hand flat on the floor but can do pushups without too much discomfort by holding dumbells while doing them. Hope you can get back to it soon :)

    Okaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!! How about for something freaking POSITIVE!!!
     I TOTALLY SMASHED MY LAST FITNESS TEST SCORES!!!! And it is all thanks to the totally awesome workouts ya’ll have been working so hard to do, film, edit, etc and get it up here to keep people like me motivated. I have so much more energy, I am feeling more confident EVEN AFTER ONLY 2 WEEKS, and I can’t wait to take some after pictures at the end of this challenge.

    squat jump burpees:16, 14, 13
    superman pushup:10, 4 +4mod, 5 +3mod
    (Legs were straighter this time)elevated tricep dip:17, 15, 9
    (did some crunches rather than going all the way up ‘cuz I feel it burn in my abs more)elevated knee abs:21, 22, 20

    Still not great, and I can’t wait to smash these next time but I cannot deny the improvements I’ve made! WAHOO!!! Thanks so much for your motivation and high spirits, Lisa, and to keep on keeping on in spite of all the haters and naysayer. Also, thank you for putting on pants. LOL!

    Goodness – If I worked out with just a tank top on (and no sports bra) I’d knock myself unconscious! :) You’re lucky you can manage just fine and look GREAT doing it!
