Extreme Yoga Workout

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Mass Suit.

Feature Fitness Tool: MASS SUIT
Workout: Simple but POWERful yoga workout (do with or without the suit)
Goal: Strengthen, Tone, Burn More Calories, Challenge Balance, Gain Muscle Control & Improve Flexibility

Mass SuitI love bodyweight exercises. Burpees, mountain climbers, plank, lunges – they are all amazing exercises you can do anywhere. BUT, what if you could make them even more challenging? What if you could add resistance without carrying weights? OR, what if you would love to carry weights but the exercise doesn’t allow that option. That’s exactly where the MASS SUIT comes in.

The MASS SUIT connects resistance bands to key areas, like ankles, knees, elbows and hands to add more resistance during your workout. Whether you are doing a cardio and conditioning workout (we’ll have one coming soon for ya!) or you’re doing yoga – the MASS SUIT can double the intensity and boost calorie burn, as well as muscle power, strength and tone.

Here is a yoga workout I designed for MASS SUIT. You can go through this whole routine with or without it – but the MASS SUIT definitely makes it much more challenging! Give it a try and let us know how you like it! If you go through it without the MASS SUIT and are interested in adding the MASS SUIT to your workout toolbox, you can get one for $199 – but they have other awesome tools, using the same technology, for different sports and workouts, (like the lateral trainer!) starting at only $33.95.
