Jennifer does the routine below three times a week. “Try to hold each pose for 30 to 60 seconds ( 5 to 10 deep breaths), then follow each move immediately with two sets of 8 to 10 reps of the paired calisthenic. Right away, you’ll be less stressed and more energized. And in as few as four weeks, you’ll feel and look noticeably stronger, longer and leaner” says Ingber.
