DEADBUGS

Before I even start the challenge I want to make note that anyone, at all levels, can and should join. It doesn’t matter how experienced you are, what kind of shape you are in, or your education on the exercises. I want to teach you if you are willing to learn. The first few exercises I filmed, I’m only wearing shorts and a sports bra to show that I too am not perfect! I have rolls, look very unflattering in certain angles, and to am on a journey towards better health. You’ve got to start somewhere, and this is a judgement free zone!

Have you ever seen a ladybug on it’s back? That’s where the name came from!

For the exercise you will start lying on your back, with you hands straight up like a zombie and your knees up making a ninety degree angle. While you keep your core tight and lower back push down to the floor, you will extend opposite arm and leg towards the ground. The come back to your starting position and do the same on the other side. Make sure you inhale as your reset and exhale as you use your core to do the movement. This is a great exercise to work on should and hip mobility without putting pressure on the joint. Using your core this way can help posture, stability, and over all core shape.

You can repeat this exercise for reps or for time. It all depends on where your at, how your body is responding, and making sure you challenge yourself!

Make sure to post your video to the Balance by Brittany Facebook Page or tag me in your Instagram or Twitter post using my handle and the hashtag #30daycorechallenge If you’re uncomfortable posting a video, you can always post a motivational quote, picture, or something health and fitness related. Make sure to encourage others, an never, never judge! Again, this is a judgement free zone!
