ROMWOD’s focus on breathing techniques prepares your mind for battle. Your body is capable of doing anything your mind allows it to do, so training your mind to focus through any challenge can help your performance at the gym, on the field, and in life.
In addition, ROMWOD places a tremendous emphasis on developing what we call the Warrior Mentality. Our routines train your mind to focus, to remain calm when everything in your body is telling you to panic, and to keep your body running efficiently while enduring stress. A big part of this training involves breathing techniques and breath control exercises that are directly applicable in the gym.
Items that you will see used in many classes include:
– A blanket, pillow, towel, or ab mat to create comfort or help achieve a position
– A yoga block, kettle bell, or water bottle to give a little stability as needed
– A yoga mat to make working on the floor more comfortable
ROMWOD is accessible to anyone regardless of your current range of motion. In ROMWOD you hold natural positions and allow time and gravity to open you up without forcing the body into positions or depth it is not ready for.
We do not recommend doing ROMWOD right after training when you are extremely warm. This system is meant to be done when the body is cool.
You can do ROMWOD minutes before training and you will feel the benefits of it in your workout, but the ROMWOD will not warm your muscles. You will still want to perform a dynamic warm up after your ROMWOD is complete before you train.
When you sign up for ROMWOD you can access the weekly programing which gives you a video every day to follow. Based on the time you have available each day, you can choose to do the ROMWOD video (approx. 25 minutes long) or the Scaled video (approx. 12 minutes long). In addition, we give you a weekly Warrior Series video (approx. 45 minutes long) to do as active recovery on your day off.
As a member, you will also have access to our entire video gallery allowing you to do any video at any time.
When you log in to your account, you will automatically come to the Workout of the Day (WOD) page. Each day is numbered 1-6 giving you a different video for each day of the week. On each day, you will find 2 videos to choose from. The length of the video is written above each one so that you can choose the one that fits in your schedule for that day. The last row on the WOD page says Active Recovery Day and this displays a Warrior Series video which is designed to do as active recovery on your day off. You should do this video on whatever day you dedicate to recovery. If you skip a day or just don’t have time for 7 videos a week, that’s ok, just move on with the programming and do as many days as you can. The benefits of ROMWOD come in consistency over time.
ROMWOD Daily Standard – the daily standard (these videos are 20-30 minutes long – this is the best option every day if you have time)
Warrior Series (these videos are 45-60 minutes long – for days when you want a challenge or to do as active recovery on your day off from training)
How many times a week you do a video is determined by your schedule and how quickly you want to see and feel results. The benefits of ROMWOD come from consistently working on range of motion over time. Your results will be determined by how much time you dedicate to working on it. We provide everything you need to follow along, all you have to do is do it! We provide a video every day to allow you to work on Range of Motion every day.
