Part 1 of the Car Seat Calisthenics over here. I worked up an actual sweat doing these 😎
My nit picky eye sees some pelvic/lumbar rotation I wish I could unsee but alas....nobody is perfect.
I want you to think TALL, chin tucked, abs engaged from the bottom up, and engage those serratus anterior muscles by pushing away with your hands from the pinkies! They are besties with your external obliques and work best as a team. No bearing down my ladies with prolapse...none. Do what you can skip what you can’t for now.
I was playing around with kicking at different angles which may be part of my rotation issue but do what you can with *minimal* lumbar or pelvic motion and slow it WAY down, as in slower than you think seems reasonable. This should work those abs isometrically and glutes actively.
Note: I have *no* baby in the car seat. He was napping 😴
Note again: This is sped up 2x so take it slow and use your breathing to help with the movements! Think: mindful movement.
Stay tuned for parts 2-4!
