Single Leg Stretch In Elbow Scoop

Start in the elbow scoop position: prop yourself up with your elbows directly under your shoulders and hands beside your hips. Make sure you lift up and away from your shoulders and keep your chest open. Slightly tuck your pelvis under and lift your legs into a tabletop position with the knees at 90 degree angles.

Slowly extend your right leg parallel with the ground, making sure you keep you shoulders down, chest open, abs connected and left leg stable.

Repeat on the left, this is a fantastic way to strengthen your lower abdominals and challenge your control and stability. Repeat 10 times on each side.

Scissors In Elbow Scoop

In the same elbow scoop position, extend your legs to 45 degrees. Keep your abdominals switched on at all times to protect your lower back and continue to lift up out of your shoulders so you do not start to slouch. Internally rotate your legs so that your heels are touching, and then cross your left leg over your right.

Squeeze your butt, keep your knees long, arms light and navel pulling towards your spine. Switch the position of your legs and bring your right leg in front. Continue to alternate sides, tracing the letter “C” with the feet reaching around one another in a scissor motion. Repeat 10 times on each side.

Oblique Crunch

Propped up on your left side with your elbow directly under your shoulder, bend your left knee so that your heel is in line with your tailbone. Stretch your right leg long and reach your right arm over your head to stretch through your side.

Breathe in to prepare and as you exhale, bring your right arm and leg together, following your hand with your eyes, keeping your hips stacked and squeezing through your waist. Repeat 20 times on each side.
