More core stability work coming at ya.

This time we’re going on to our side, and I’m talking, because those videos with the text overlays just take so dang long ??‍♂️.

In case you’re in the library and can’t put the sound on (aka you just don’t feel like listening to the video ?) here’s a brief rundown.
✅ Get on your side
✅ Shoulder stacked over the elbow, hips stacked directly over each other
✅ Hips at a 45 degree angle to the torso, knees at 90 degrees
✅ In one motion, use the core to SLOWLY rotate the torso and thighs off the ground, lifting as one unit
✅ In the top position, your weight should be through your forearm and outside of your lower leg
✅ Stay tall and strong though the shoulder
✅ Look under your bottom hip to include more rotational demands (if you feel able to do so)
✅ Return to the top position ✅ Lower yourself to the ground by rotating slighting backward and descending as one unit
✅ Rinse and repeat

Yes, I realize this exercise has a million names and is huge in the DNS world. Movement is movement. Call it whatever you want. I honestly hate saying things like “try to avoid this” or “make sure you do that” because I think people get too focused on what they THINK they’re supposed to feel instead of experiencing the moment and feeling what their body is doing.

That in mind, go slowly, breathe, feel, and do your best to try and move as one unit for this. Not because dissociation is bad, but simply because we’re trying to use this drill to improve passive core stiffness, improve motor control/sequencing of those tissues, and work on your ability to RESIST rotation.

3 sets of one million. Make sure you can BREATHE. Give it a shot and lemme know how it goes!
