Today i have an extra challenge for you!! And it’s 3 yoga and gymnastics inspired drills that strengthen your DEEPEST core muscles so you can lift your own body weight, improve athletic performance, sculpt and tone your waist, strengthen your hips, improve posture, and alleviate pain that’s caused from a lack of strength. Do these moves today and notice an immediate difference in standing upright and feeling strong 💪🏼.
✅ Directions — do 2 rounds of these exercises, or 3 if you’re advanced.
1️⃣ LOLASANA: place hands underneath your shoulders, and tuck knees under shoulders, with heels under hips. Press Intl hands and pull belly button to spine as you inhale, and then exhale pull knees up to chest using your core.
2️⃣ STRADDLE LIFTS: Sit upright with legs in straddle, place hands inside legs, and press hands into floor as you inhale and then exhale lift one leg up, keeping spine long as you can. If you’re more advanced Try for both legs!!
3️⃣ DOUBLE LEG LIFT: Bring legs together, ankles squeezing together, and place hands on the outside of your thighs. Sit upright, pull belly button into spine, and place your hands onto the floor as you inhale, then exhale lift both feet off the floor using your lowest core muscles. Slowly and intentionally lower legs to the floor.
