✨ looking to ramp up your #barre routine?! try the single leg #plank. it is a challenging modification to the traditional plank that produces more concentration to the #core because it adds the element of stability! ✨
Proof of motherhood: the skin of my belly will always sag. if i’m being transparent, i’m not 100% ok with it yet. although i know these lines are proof of carrying three beautiful children in my body, the inner critic still creeps in and tells me i want something that’s not mine. i’m a work in progress and one day i will love my body wholly and completely because i want that relationship. i’m working for it by showing up to learn about how to best care for my body and in turn, it shows up to allow me to do all the things i want to do without screaming out in pain. learning to let go of expectations and love what is. where are you learning to do this in your life?
also, if you’re wondering if your postpartum body is ready to do a plank again, look out for my next workshop 😉. not on the books yet. i’ll keep you posted! .
Back to basics
planking towards a stronger core. 👉the simplest exercises are often the most beneficial. 💪the plank can be done by almost every one, it will build a strong core when practiced regularly. having a strong core is the foundation for all movement it allows the spine to move freely and generate dynamic movement through the neuromuscular system.
a strong adaptable core also protects the spine during trauma such as an accident and reduces the risk of injury and constant back pain. 👉often we are bombarded with very technical and advanced exercises on social media.
these exercises often take months and months if not years of daily practice to master. 🏋️♀️most of us have only a few hours a week to train due to full time work and family commitments etc so rather than chasing the advanced movements instead focus on mastering the basics and doing them very well and watch your results sky rocket.
