Back in our cute little studio after a fab holiday!!! I've missed this place!!
I love combination exercises that challenge multiple systems. It's so important to learn to control alignment and core in movement as well as on the mat. This little series challenges balance &coordination, core, postural muscles and strength.
Aim to keep hips square, slight bend in knees (like a half squat position) and neck in line with thoracic spine, don't let head drop forward. Watch that the scapulae aren't creeping into your ears and that your core is drawn in towards the spine. When arms are up higher,be mindful of your rib cage trying to pop away. Emphasize the movement of the arms backwards using the upper back & scapular stabilizers. I'm using 2 lbs in each hand. As you can see for me in my wobbling, the hip extension & arm reach with the right hip is much more difficult. My right hip flexor is constantly a little tighter than the left causing a minor bit of rotation in my pelvis. It's Annoying as hell but I keep working on it!😆
Give it a whirl, 3 cycles with 5-10 reps of everything. Work it as a series and maybe throw it in at the beginning, middle and end of some cardio or just randomly throughout your day!! Happy Friday World!!😁😁 -💥💥STAY LIFTED IN THE CORE & PELVIC FLOOR THROUGHOUT ENTIRE ROUTINE!!
-💥💥BREATHE!!! I like to exhale in the more difficult parts of an exercise to help my core stay connected and turned on🤗
