Booty Banded Planks Galore …and More, Rock your Abs, Day 21

Instructor: Kristine Chaussard
Level: Advanced, Intermediate
Focus :   

Today’s booty banded planks workout is all core and almost all planks, so be ready! We are increasing in level as we advance in our Core Strength Program in this 7th week. Focus on pulling the abdominal wall always upwards and backwards towards the spine. Breath fully into the lungs, upper back and sides of rib cage, so that you can maintain your abdominal muscular engagement at all times. Focus on moving from your core and center outward. Though planks inevitably strengthen our shoulder stabilizers as well, try to not “muscle” your way with your upper body through the exercises but really hold your lift from your abs. At the same time, watch that you maintain a healthy setting of the shoulder blades across the back, no winging. Planks are an incredible full body strength workout, so enjoy today and be challenged!

Equipment Needed :     

The Reformer and a booty band (preferably light to medium resistance).

➡️ Remember our rule! IF you do not have the Reformer OR if today’s class level is too much, simply repeat a prior workout in our program so you remain consistent and on track.👍🏼

Class Level :     

Intermediate – advanced. Suggestions given for modifications when needed.

The Course of this Class :   

As stated above today’s class is almost solely planks done of course in different planes. If you aren’t warmed up yet you might enjoy doing 1 minute of jumping jacks before pushign play! Otherwise we start right into it without much of a warm up. To finish class off we’ll give our wrists a break and lie supine for some very core concentrated exercises to wrap it all up. Focus on your breath today as you move and keeping that abdominal engagement throughout. Pay attention to your form as well.

You did it, bravo! See you next week for our last week of our Core Strength Program!!
