Welcome back to our 21 day push up challenge!! We’re kicking off week 2 with a bang!! Having a strong core is so crucial to successful push ups – so today is all about the core .. and challenging your balance and stabilization.
2 moves today – both in plank. You’re welcome to drop to your knees at any point if you need – but keep the plank form with hips tucked under and a straight line from your head to the floor (knees or heels).
Move 1 is a plank shoulder tap. From a high plank position with proper form – slowly and with control lift 1 hand and tap the opposite shoulder. Lower down with control and repeat with the other hand. Total of 10 reps.
Move 2 is low plank jacks. In a low plank with your elbows right under shoulders, either jump both feet out and in together, or if you want to stay low impact, tap 1 foot at a time out to the side and back in. Again 10 reps each.
The key with both these moves is to focus on keeping your upper body perfectly still. Imagine there’s a glass of water on your back and you can’t spill it. Fire up your stabilizers!!
You’ve got this!!! Comment below when done.
