This week our focus will be our midsection, to strengthen our core.  A strong core is an irreplaceable asset.  A stable midsection can give you better balance, better posture, and can even help reduce back pain. All movement starts with your core, why not give it some attention!

WEEK 14: 

Proper Form
  1. Lie face up with your arms extended toward the ceiling and your legs in a tabletop position (knees bent 90 degrees and stacked over your hips). This is starting position.
  2. Slowly extend your right leg out straight, while simultaneously dropping your left arm overhead. Keep both a few inches from the ground. Squeeze your butt and keep your core engaged the entire time, lower back pressed into the floor. (belly button to spine)
  3. Bring your arm and leg back to the starting position.
  4. Repeat on the other side, extending your left leg and your right arm. Rest and repeat!
Muscles Engaged: This exercise targets the core "trunk" muscles, including: obliquesrectus abdoministransverse abdominis
