Day 11 #handstandbackbendsplit against a wall
Repeat day 1 and 2 to stretch the back muscles and wrists in preparation for the backbend. Repeat a #backbend #pigeon, #wildthing, #fishpose #backbendpushups #dancerspose and #hollowback from day 3-10 to feel the strength you are gaining, open the front of the body and strengthen the back while, at the same time, opening the hip region. Adding a standing split to the backbend today.
The closer you are to the wall, the harder. The farther away from the wall, the easier. Watch out for those baseboards.
Todays challenge is very hard. If your foot only makes it half way down the wall or less that is perfectly fine. Or just stick with a backbend and extend one leg at a time to the ceiling.
1-handstand against the wall
2-bend the right knee and run the toe all the way down the wall as low as you can go.
3-hold for 5 seconds and bring the foot back up
4-Repeat left side
Backbends are essential to give our bodies an equal stretch and strength in the entire front and back of the body.
Make sure to listen to your body and do not force yourself into a pose. Hosts will show modifications, but backbends in general are challenging. So take this challenge at your own pace to safely stretch and strengthen the back as well as the entire body.
Hosts will post the challenge the night before. Please follow @laurabpilates and @kerispilatesroom and our sponsor @fitfitactive to be eligible for prizes. Also use #OpenYourHeartToBackbends so we can see. Can't wait for you to open your hearts to Backbends with us
