Note: I have realized that I need to practive the front relax pose a lot. Due to the fact that the class I will be in will have over 20 guys. So, the one pose I will be holding the most is the front relax. A couple of nights ago, I started practicing it by holding at minutes at a time. Last night I did it for 4 minutes. Not easy. The goal for the next 5 week is to work up to 15 minutes.
