We love mixing in variations of this move to get a few muscles working at once!
Be sure to give it a try mixed into your conditioning or on its own and let us know what you think.
Great combination move to further challenge your core stability as well as get you using your upper back! Start light, maybe 5 lbs or just with your hands. Tag someone below you think needs or will enjoy this move!
- Start in a good plank position. Spread your feet wider to start & as it becomes easier, bring them closer together. Without letting your hips sway/rock, bring one hand up towards your ribs. Pause, then repeat on the other side. The better you hold the plank, the harder this move becomes.
- You want to watch your shoulders here as well. Think of pulling your shoulder blade up & preventing your shoulder from tilting forward at the top of the pull. Get these movements perfect before you increase the weight.
You can mix this move into any circuit/workout, or do on its own for some increased core/back work. We typically do this move for between 5-10 reps per side with holds at the top for up to 10 secs in some circuits.
Move It Monday will feature a new exercise movement for you weekly, for all fitness levels, to help improve your safety and performance, especially with dance.
