Is it a Jacknife? A V-Sit? 100s? How about a combination of all 3?! Came up with this triple-whammy for my students who wanted to increase their ability to hold a V Sit for longer periods of time. The jacknive portion of this combo adds a cardio aspect to the exercise (having to move from lying with the arms extended above the head to the tailbone hold. The rapid pumping of the arms (the "100s" - my fave Pilates move) not only adds an extra heart rate boost but fires up the obliques as well. The combo also emphasizes the importance of utilizing different types of breath during a workout when needed: Deep inhale while lying on the ground, deep exhale when elevating into the V Sit, and short, rapid exhales for every arm pump.
Try adding this into your current ab routine - 3 sets for 30 seconds. If you attempt it, tag me and let me know how you did! 💪🏿 #cryswillfitlife #getyourfitlife #workoutwednesday #humpdayworkout
