Part 3 of Car Seat Calisthenics!
This time balance is challenged. We all need more balance, in all things 🧘♀️
I want you to think TALL, chin tucked, abs engaged from the bottom up, ribcage down, and hip hinge from the glutes (no rounded back! Only go as far down as your hamstrings allow in order to keep that good hinge. Set the car seat on something to make it higher if needed.
Keep that core engaged throughout and move mindfully.
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! Again, think: mindful movement, exhale on the effort.
Oh wait, another note: if these are too hard, modify!
~If hamstrings are a hindrance, bend your stance leg more.
~If single leg deadlift is too challenging at this time and/or balance is not there then do a double leg version.
~Hip hinge, hip hinge, aaaaaand hip hinge!
~Don’t use any weight and then work up.
~KEEP YOUR RIBCAGE DOWN! Yes, even in standing.
~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 part 4!
