Chi Flow Yoga Routine

Dragon Ball Super Jiren Meditation

How can we improve Chi flow like Piccolo, Tien and Jiren from Dragon Ball?

Fictional to Functional:

There's no doubt that some of our favorite anime warriors have ultimate strength, power and speed from all the seemingly unlimited physical training we see on the big screen. Typically, we'll see the Z-Fighters sparring one another, training under a master or higher supreme, challenging their self in the hyperbolic time chamber or gravity room or fighting a villain from destroying the universe. Although this is what makes Dragon Ball entertaining, there is something else we see these fighters incorporating into their training, but not as entertaining and that is, meditating. Meditating didn't help these fighters increase muscle mass, strength, power or speed however it did help them connect their body, mind and spirit that aligned their Chi and took their performance to an all new level.

Although we can't float in the air as we meditate like Piccolo, Tien or Jiren, we as human warriors can still work on improving our mind, body and spirit connection by learning how to control our breath while executing slow and and controlled movements. This yoga routine will challenge warriors to focus on executing controlled breathes while completing a series of yoga exercises further improving the warriors Chi.

Workout Implementation:

To maintain balance between all other training practices, it’s recommended to complete a yoga routine at least 5-3x/week.

Workout Details:

Each exercise should follow the assigned breathing count and a box breathing pattern: inhale for 4 seconds, hold for 4 seconds, exhale for 4 seconds, hold for 4 seconds then repeat.
