Prepping your prenatal body for a workout is just as important as the workout itself. In our continuing series with Complete Core, we explore a lower body prep session. Try these three quick moves prior to starting your leg day.
Hook the band around your right foot and stand with your left foot on the band to stabilize. Position the right leg out to the side and slightly forward so there is tension on the band to start. Inhale to prepare, exhale draw the leg across the midline of the body. Hold for 3 seconds. Repeat 12X each side. Do not rotate the hips as you move the leg. The front hip point on the standing leg should not drop throughout the movement.
Hook the band around your right foot and stand with your left foot on the band to stabilize. Start with the right leg lifted. Inhale to prepare, exhale move the right leg out to the side against the tension of the band. Holds 3 seconds. Repeat 12X each side. Keep the movement small so that you are not leaning your waist over the standing leg.
Lunge with Lat Pull Down.
Stand in a lunge position, feet hip distance apart, 3 feet lengthwise front to back, raise up on the back toe. Hold band with arms shoulder width apart so there is tension on the band. Inhale, bend into both knees and raise arms up overhead. Exhale, press up through legs and bend the elbows pulling the band in towards the chest. Repeat 12X each side.
