The season is back Ladies- the first practice takes off on March 8th!
To prep- A March Core Challenge! See you all soon!
And do not forget to stretch, or maybe go for a little jog! :)
Upside down Frogs: Laying flat on your back. A ball held in place between the knees. Crunch together. Grab ball. Fully extend. Ball is now over your head. Crunch back together. Replace ball between knees. Repeat. Every crunch together counts as 1.
Russian Twists: Sitting, legs together straight in front. Weights (I recommend 5lbsx2) on the left. Pick them up, fully rotate to the right. Place weights on ground. Pick them back up and fully rotate back to the left. Repeat. Every Left Right twist counts as 1.
Lean Backs: On your knees with a straight back. Weights held mid chest. Lean back (without dropping the butt or knees) as far as possible. Return back to the original position. Repeat.
Leg Drops: Laying flat on your back. Legs straight up. Hands under hips. Lower legs straight down without touching the ground or bending the knees. Bring back to original position. Lower them to the left. Bring back to the original position. Lower them to the right. Bring back to the original position. Every 3 (Left Right Center) counts as 1.
Bonjour my athletes!
I stumbled on this from a running blog I visit frequently. I thought what a great idea to get you challenging yourself on your own. So here it is, and now I am challenging you! If you are thinking "ho hum Savich" this is too easy, lower your knees to a hover just above the ground and raise them again. Still thinking this plank is too easy, check out the image below the calendar- you can try this position which will work your triceps and shoulders as well.
Not sure why the plank is beneficial to you at all? Livestrong.com has this great post of the Benefits of a Plank!
