This is great way to mix up your core work and include a bit of upper body as well!
Be sure to give it a try mixed into your conditioning or on its own and let us know what you think.
This week’s move is a move Ben Bruno originally shared a while ago and is excellent for challenging your core, but also you’re able to load your shoulder/chest a bit! Tag someone below you think needs or will enjoy this move!
Start laying on your back, strong ab brace to lock ribs down toward your pelvis. Then lift your legs slightly off the ground as you lift shoulder blades off as well. Keep your lower back flat.
Holding a moderate weight dumbbell in one hand, maintain the hollow hold position as slowly press the weight up & down. Don’t let your body rotate or twist.
You should be able to start with 5-10 lbs, as increase slowly as the move becomes easier. Don’t cheat by letting your lower back arch upward.
You can mix this move into any circuit/workout, or do on its own for some different core stimulus., Typically we work 8-16 reps per side, increasing the weight until it’s a challenge!
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.
