Video 138 | Day 5 Strength & Conditioning Core Challenge with Lauren Eirk
30 Minutes • 30-Oct-2020
In today's culture, we spend large amounts of time in a seated posture. For this reason, many of the muscles that hold us upright in our back become weak. Posture becomes more rounded and shoulders tend to roll forward. In this video, we will target spinal extensor muscles, internal / external obliques, quadratus lumborum, latissimus dorsi, levator scapulae, and hip abductor muscles.
Side-bending muscles bring balance and synergy to the trunk and spine. The help our posture, which enhances respiration, and strengthens our lower back. The sponge ball will help us to depress the shoulder girdle and support the trunk to target this region even more. You will also notice loading exercises using the dumbbell only on one side. This causes the unloaded side to prevent lateral flexion / side-bend for a great core stabilization workout! As always, modifications and cues are given to ensure that you can move through the positions safely. As strength improves, so will your flexibility!
