Core Exercise of the Week!

My apologies for my one day tardiness for this week’s “Tight Tuesday” post… Life happens!  I’m know all of you can relate!

This week’s core exercise targets the internal and external oblique muscles (side abdominal muscles).

Start position:  Standard Plank (on your elbows); Exact terminology is Prone Iso-Ab

Motion:  As you draw-in your naval towards your spine and tighten your core muscles, rotate your hips to the right -> center -> left -> center , pivoting on your toes and keeping your feet together.

*Tip:  When you rotate to each side, think about raising your hip and lowering your shoulder on the same side. In addition, always relax your shoulders and avoid elevating them.

Try it today! Let me know what you think!
