Day FOUR! So proud of you – you’re showing up each day and starting to build consistency! This is KEY to being successful!
Today we’re working on our last 2 moves. For the past 4 days, each day I’ve been giving you 2 moves to work on. Now from here on, we are using these same 8 moves – just upping the challenge with them. So let’s finish this off chatting about our last 2 …
So many people ask me – how do I work my lower abs?? Well this is it!! But the key here is to keep pressing your belly button IN and your lower back flat into the ground. That ensures the work stays in your core, and not your hip flexors.
Use your breathe! Take a giant exhale to help raise the legs up with power. Then super slowly, lower them back down. Right BEFORE they’re about to touch the ground, exhale again to lift back up.
Modification – if you need to bend your knees and tap your heels to the ground, take it 🙂 But when you’re ready, straighten those legs and keep the heels up!
Starting first in perfect HIGH PLANK position. Get your plank form down perfectly before you attempt to challenge your balance!
In plank – shoulders are over wrists and eye gaze is ahead of hands. Hips are tucked under, core braced. Make a nice line from head to heels.
Modification – drop to your knees if needed, but keep the hips under.
Once you’ve got the plank down, now start lifting a hand and tapping the opposite shoulder. Move slowly and with control! The idea here is to keep your upper body perfectly still and balanced as you transfer the weight.
And those were the last 2 moves for this challenge. Comment below when you’re done today – which is your FAVE move so far?
