Looking for a good core stability exercise? Try the modified push-up! ... When done correctly, the modified push-up will work your pectoral muscles, the triceps, and your core of course! ... To do a modified push-up correctly: . ✳️ Position yourself on your hands and knees, with your hands shoulder-width apart and your knees basically hip-width apart. . ✳️ Contract your abdominal muscles throughout the exercise. Keep your back nice and straight. . ✳️ Slowly bend your elbows as you lower your chest until your chin almost reaches the floor (or as far as you comfortably can go). Your movements should be nice and controlled. . ✳️ Make sure your eyes are looking towards the floor and not ahead of you. . ✳️ Slowly come back up as you return to the starting position.

Because we ❤️ @cmrowe59 so much, we’re posting this shot of her working on these Stability Ball Reverse Lunges (part of the Core Stability and Balance Circuit). . Just a reminder, the studio will be closed on Monday for Memorial Day. We’ll reopen on Tuesday.
@athenawarriorfitness client and absolute badass Christa Rowe (@cmrowe59) worked on an intense Core Stability and Balance Circuit today during her #personaltrainingsession. This exercise in particular is called the Stability Ball Single Leg Knee Tuck. Nicely done today, Christa!!🙌🏼
The Pilates Bent Knee Rollup - a classic mat exercise that really works the abdominal muscles when done the right way. . A few signs you’re doing this move incorrectly: 1) You’re using momentum to bring yourself back up to starting position, 2) You have hunched/rounded shoulders causing neck strain, and 3) You’re over tucking your pelvis while straining the lower back. . To correctly do the pilates bent knee rollup: ... ✅ Begin with balancing evenly into both sits bones. . ✅ Using deep core and intrinsic spinal musculature, tilt to the back of the pelvis and then begin to articulate the spine rolling down vertebra by vertebra until the spine finishes in neutral on the mat. . ✅ Reverse the articulation rolling up the mat vertebra by vertebra until finishing back to the top of the sits bones.
