 This week our focus will be on our core.  Core work trains the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work in harmony.  This leads to better balance and stability, whether in a specific sport or in daily life.  Core exercise is also a great tool in loosing weight and building muscle mass.
Our exercise of focus this week is: 
Reverse Crunch. 

Proper Form: Begin this exercise on your back.  You may choose to lie on a mat or blanket for additional comfort.  Extend your arms out to your sides and raise your legs 90 degrees, (see pic 1).
Breath out and slowly raise your hips off the mat, rolling your spin, thinking knee toward head, (keeping the 90 degree knee shape). 
Slowly and controlled, lower your hips slowly back to the floor, rolling through your spine again to prevent stress on your back.

Perform this exercise for desired reps, rest and repeat until our 10 min daily goal is achieved. 

***TIP-breathing in core work is important, it helps engage your core for increased results.  Exhale as your hips lift off the floor, you want your exhale to be on your working position.

Muscles Worked: This exercise targets all areas of your core.
