EXERCISE OF THE WEEK; Week 11
When discussing arm exercises most resort to the standard push-up; which is beneficial, BUT there are many other versions to the standard "push-up". These variations combine multiple muscle regions, for increased results and less strain on your wrists. Our exercise of the week focuses on your central body, with an emphasis on your arms. We will work your upper arm muscles, core and your upper thigh region. Consistently doing this workout will result in increased arm strength and mobility.
PLANK TO DOLPHIN
Proper Form: Start in a forearm plank with your forearms on the floor, (elbows directly underneath your shoulders, hands facing forward) Arms should be parallel, and legs extended behind you. Tuck your tailbone (squeeze those glutes) to engage your core, butt, and quads. ←←This is the starting position.
Press through your forearms and lift your hips up and back, creating an inverted V shape with your body. Your head should now be between your shoulders. Pause for a second and then slowly lower back into a forearm plank. Continue this movement for for 1 minute, rest and repeat.⥁
Muscles Targeted: Core, deltoids, rhomboids, and quads.
