Uncategorized Oct 16, 2020

This post is an extension of another post where I shared the basics of the most common stay at home workout moves. You can see that post here where we go over proper form and strength progressions for the squat, push-up, and plank. 

Today we are rounding out our core body weight movements with the flute bridge, sit-up, and back extension. 

This much is true, we may be stuck with unpredictable circumstances with COVID but I'll be damned if we won't make the most of this situation. These small steps will help  you make progress even in these uncertain times. 
 
 
Let's go!
 
Sit-Ups
So many goals involve a strong core. While seeing abs is not necessary in any way a well functioning core is essential to doing your thing each day. 
In this video I'll show you how to add proper sit-ups to your toolbox.

In the video you'll see ...

1. The number one sit up mistake to avoid.
