Part 2 of the Car Seat Calisthenics over here. I worked up an actual sweat doing these 😎 Again.
I want you to think TALL, chin tucked, abs engaged from the bottom up, ribcage down!
No bearing down, my ladies with prolapse ...none. Do what you can, skip what you can’t for now.
Note: I have *no* baby in the car seat.
Note again: This is sped up 2x so take it slow, breathing through the movement! Think: mindful movement, exhale on the effort, and a delightfully neutral pelvis (pubis on the same plane as ASIS (bone on the front of your "hips"), on the same plane as lowest ribs...so bolster your head if you need assistance getting those ribs down).
Oh wait, another note: if these are too hard, modify!
~Keep one foot down at all times.
~Don’t use any weight and then work up.
~KEEP YOUR RIBCAGE DOWN!
~Only go as far overhead with shoulder flexion as you can while KEEPING RIBCAGE DOWN.
~Use a mirror or video yourself and see what is going on so you know what to fix or high-five yourself for doing well :)
Stay tuned for parts 3 & 4!
