Need a surefire way to have sore abs for days? Take a cue from our friend and fitness guru Micha Shaw (@michashaw) and follow along with her video below!
(apologies in advance for how much it will hurt to laugh tomorrow)
Here are three of my favorite post baby core exercises. Add them to your warm up or your workout. 1) LEG CHANGES: keep the entire body still (abdominal muscles are stabilizers not movers), hips and knees stay at right angles. Start with one leg at a time, and then try both legs moving simultaneously. 2) SUPINE SPINE TWIST: arms out to a T position, palms pressing down. Your range of motion depends on your abdominal control and flexibility. Start with a small movement and gradually increase the range of motion. Inhale: knees to the right. Exhale: pull knees back to center. Movement is initiated by your core. Add leg extensions to raise the level of difficulty. 3) SINGLE LEG DEADBUGS: my favorite. Super important to press into the leg and resist any movement. Even before you extend on the one side, your abdominal are working to keep you stabilized. It looks easy, but it's not. Let me know what you think! 💕😘. Oooops! I almost forgot...this video is sped up. Take your time. Move with your breath and stay in control.
