Today's session focuses on our speed, agility, and quickness while also strengthening our legs and hips. A cone is the only thing needed and any kid is able to join along. Keep in mind that this is a very intense exercise, but we all know hard work comes with great rewards.
Ivan made the idea of YFNA come to life. His life is revolved around fitness and nutrition since he was six years old and never stopped since.

If the exercises in the video are not making you sweat enough, you can become an overachiever by working harder. You can do some of the following to challenge yourself:

You are able to go at your own pace if the exercises are too challenging for you. You don't want to overwork yourself because it can possibly lead to any injury if done the improperly. You can do some of the following to still follow along safely:
- Slower Repetition
- Remove Weights
- Longer Breaks
There will be new exercises that you will new to you. Your body will react to new things that may seem challenging (This is a good thing). Make sure to have your body stretched on muscles that will be activated. Do stretches before and after your exercises! We stretch before to be more flexible for our muscles to perform full range exercises, and we stretch after to prevent soreness!
Many people have the reasonable fear about doing the exercise incorrectly. This is because people don't have the education to know what they are doing. The main concepts to think about when performing the exercise is to ask yourself this:
1) What movement will cause certain muscles to contract and stretch?
2) What is the maximum range of motion I can perform?
3) Do I feel the targeted muscles being activated?
4) What is the correct posture when I perform the exercise?
Exercise For Fun!
