Earlier this month I sent out a newsletter with December's Move of the Month. In case you missed it, here it is: "Plank Vacuums".
To do the move start on the ground in a low (as shown in the video) or high (on your hands) plank position. You can do these either way and are both very effective. Simply raise your tailbone up towards the ceiling and lower back down to the starting position. After 10 repetitions you should begin to feel your muscle fatigue deep within your core.
-You will start to fatigue in your lower back as well which is a good thing! It means you lower back is getting strengthened as well.
-Be careful to not allow your hips to drop lower than the starting plank position as that could put your back in a very strained position.
Our "Hall Family Fitness Challenge" to your family is to do 50 reps every single day either first thing in the morning or right before bed. You may also consider doing 25 in the morning and 25 at night.
If you miss a couple days, that's "ok"! Just get back on track.
I love hearing your feedback! Please drop me a note below...
