Site specific leg and upper body circuit, inspired by this beautiful, old Central Park tree. I love you Mr. Tree, and thank you for letting me step all over you!
_____________________ Reverse single leg alternating split squats combined with an assisted stiff legged deadlift is such a great way to gain strength and a connection to your glutes in these functional movement patterns (hip hinge and lunge). _____________________ Adding a segment of a downdog and inverted plank, walking up and down the tree, is a great way to gain core strength, upper body conditioning, and release all of the SITTING, office desk muscles, while strengthening the ones that will help prevent body aches and pains!
Bird dogs are a daily staple here! Add these into your routine before a workout, or as a supplement on your rest days. They are great for core and glute stabilization and strengthening. Aim for 3 sets of 10-12 each side.
