Exercise of the week

20130213-073013.jpg

Hey ladies! I wanted to start sharing with you a new exercise each week. I love learning and I feel like I have so much more to learn when it comes to exercise and nutrition. I’d love for you to join us on this journey to improving your health. Feel free to comment on this exercise or suggest ones we can use in the future.

This is a intermediate exercise, focusing on the core muscle tissues and stability. You also will feel this in your shoulders and chest.

Have your exercise ball under your feet, shoulders over your hands, make sure to pull your belly button in and keep your gaze forward. Roll the ball in the direction of your chest, using your abs to really help pull and raise your hips in the air (middle picture) then reverse the movement back into plank which would be considered 1 rep. If you have never done these I would start off with 1 to 2 sets of 5-8 reps.

(Remember it’s always crutial to warm-up your body prior to working out and cool down the body, stretch once you have completed your workout. I am not liable to any injuries/health issues that result from exercises from this site. Consult with your healthcare provider before beginning any workout regimine. If you feel pain or any discomfort while exercising stop immediately).
