I’m back with another edition of Weekly Wisdom presented by yours truly and the UTSA Campus Rec Marketing team. This week we show you how to add a wiser warm-up to your workout. This warm-up would be a great start for any of the workouts posted on my workouts page.
Perform each of the suggested exercises for 8-10 reps (each side when applicable) to get your body loose and warmed up. Quickly, efficient, and effective! Enjoy!
I get asked frequently about other places (besides the UTSA Rec Center) that my instructors and students can indulge in yoga. With that in mind I compiled some resources that I’ve used myself and would recommend to others. In the resources below you will find San Antonio studios, online classes, website resources, and Yoga Teacher Training schools. Please keep in mind that this is not an exhaustive list. These resources are the ones I’ve found to be most helpful and for the best price (if any cost at all).

We’re getting back to the basics in this weeks Workout Wednesday. So often we get caught up in the hardest, fanciest exercises all for what? To look cool in the gym? When really all we need is a good basic workout that doesn’t take up 2 hours of our day. Get started with a 5-10 minute dynamic warm-up followed by today’s Back to Basics Workout:
Finish with a foam rolling session and a good stretch. Depending on how much rest you take between sets and rounds this workout should take about 35-45 minutes from Warm-up to Cool-down.
