Round the clock lunge: Start in a standing position. Imagine you are standing on a clock. Core tight, neutral spine. Lunge forward with your left leg toward the 12 pm mark, step back to the starting position. Then lunge to your side at 2pm marking, then step back. Then lunge to your side at 4pm marking, then step back. Then lunge to your side at 6pm marking, then step back. This was one repetition. Repeat 20-25 times.
Spinal balance burnout: Kneel on all fours with your knees directly under your hips and your shoulders directly over your hands. Inhale and extend your opposite arm and leg. Flex your foot, engage your core, maintain neutral spine and neck alignment. Exhale and draw your arm in and while bring your knee toward your elbow. Repeat 25 time on one side. Then switch.
Stretch. And do not forget that protein shake or a banana and nuts so you can fuel those muscle and see your hard work pay off.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Have a great day.
