Featured Exercise: Bottom’s Up
Try this one on for size…here is a Bottom’s Up Exercise that will target your bottom’s up through the core. It takes those weak back muscles and makes them stronger.
Start in position #1. Weight evenly distributed on hands and hips. Relax feet.
Lift your legs at the same time squeezing your bottom and bending your elbows to put more weight on your hands. Lower down to position #1 and repeat 12 times. You can catch some air and go fast to music – enjoy it’s FUN!
Beginner: 2 full sets of 10 (try lifting only one leg at a time)
Intermediate: 3 full sets of 12
Advanced: 5 sets of 16
(rest only up to 30 seconds between sets)
Don’t go up too high where the brunt of your weight pulls on your back muscles. This is targeting your bottom and slightly your lower back.
