Seq Fit. It’s been written up on the board behind the desk, talked about in our August newsletter, and has been seen in a handful of Snapchat stories and Instagram posts, but no one really knows what it is or the benefits it has on your body. From experience, and being the daughter of the woman who brought Seq Fit to life, I can tell you that nothing about the class is easy, just like a regular WOD.
What is so important for the BLF community to know is that Seq Fit is an incredibly good place to start if you enjoy working out and want to be successful throwing weight around, but is also a great thing to pair with BLF’s WOD’s. The main idea I want to get across is that Seq Fit is meant to work all of the tiny muscles that support the bigger muscles we work everyday at BLF. By working these smaller muscles, you may get sore more quickly simply because you’ve never worked these muscles before. But the strength you are giving these muscles will do nothing but good things for your more prominent muscles. Seq Fit will help your stability, your balance, and will prove to you that 2, 3, and 5 pound weights are not as light as you once thought they were. The class is broken up into parts: warm-up, arms, quads, glutes, and core. The basis of Seq Fit is high reps, low weight/bodyweight. Most of the movements use a box that is manipulated in numerous ways to give your body a full and effective workout. The reason the box is used is because on top of strengthening muscles, you are getting a cardio push for the entire 50 minutes.
From the creator of Seq Fit her self, Leslie wants you all to, “think of it as detailed muscle work that will give you foundational strength to train bigger with confidence.” BLF hopes you all find yourselves seq-ing fit very soon!
