WORKOUT GOAL: MAINTAIN AND IMPROVE CARDIOVASCULAR FUNCTION!
This workout guides you through 15 minutes of Attentional Control (agility with the ability to improve FOCUS and FOOTWORK) to give you an intense cardiovascular challenge. Go through the CHUNK once for 15 minute of cardio…layer on 2, 3, 4x through to get up to 60 minutes of cardio as you perfect the foot work. Attentional Control Patterns are meant to improve components of brain function such as short-term memory and reactive ability, which decline in function as we age if not challenged! Research supports the act of learning a new skill while performing aerobic exercise as a successful method of reducing markers of cognitive decline. Not only are you doing Attentional Control Patterns for the health of your cardiovascular system, but also for your BRAIN and your autonomic nervous system as you perform your Breathography patterns in conjunction with the foot-work.
