This 2-block workout is sure to make your core and lower body burn so good! Let's start block 1 with simple side bends. They are a great stretch that will work your obliques. Reach until you feel that burn while keeping your legs stable and planted. Next up are 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. Then we'll do shoulder bridge hold. The shoulder bridge hold seems easy, but you want to make sure you’re really pushing through your hips to keep your legs active as you hold this position. This will engage your core and strengthen your back muscles, be sure to keep your shoulders down so you get the most out of this one. Wrapping up block 1 with drinking birds. These are one of the absolute best exercises you can do for your back, posture and even flexibility. It seems like a simple exercise, but you want to make sure you’re keeping your legs, back and upper body engaged. Once you master this variation, you can move on to one-legged exercises that will help strengthen your legs and feet. That might sound weird, but strong feet will prevent plantar fasciitis, ankle pain and other pain in your legs. Be sure to keep your feet planted straight and really focus on keeping the weight on them as you push your butt backwards for this move. Block 2 is all about 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.
