Happy Monday warriors. We have a core and lower body workout for you today! Block 1 starts off with simple side bends. These are great stretch that will work your obliques. Reach until you feel that burn while keeping your legs stable and planted. Knock out some more simple side bends, and try to really reach far as you do each side. Next we're moving on to sit to stand. Use your bigger leg muscles (quads and hamstrings) instead of your knees as you stand. Keep your core engaged as you bend down through the hips and come back up. It’s as simple as sitting down and standing, but concentrate on keeping a flat back and engaged core. Sit back through your hips as you come down. Then we'll do sumo squats. These lateral squats will help create mobility in your hips. Be sure to keep your knees pointed out on the squat so that you feel a stretch in your groin and active glutes and quads. Think about these like you’re stepping over an invisible fence. Finally we finish up block 1 with bicycles. Don’t clasp your fingers or support your head with your hands . Fingertips on the back of your head, not grasping hands on the back of your head . Make sure your lower back is maintaining contact with the ground. Bring your elbow to your knee as much as you can. These are amazing for core engagement and if you’re not feeling that burn, make sure you’re keeping your back flat on the ground. These are a great dynamic exercise that will get a number of muscle groups working. Try to keep your leg straight at you bring your bent leg to your opposite arm, and keep a pace that keeps perfect form. Don’t forget, keep your lower back on the ground and try to touch your knees with your elbow!
