Hip Mobility, Strength & Flexibility + Core Strength for All Ages, All-Time

Instructor: Kristine Chaussard
Level: Advanced, All Levels, Beginner, Intermediate

Focus :   

Build and maintain hip mobility, strength and flexibility in pelvis, leg swing, gate and glide. Additionally we will focus on maintaining deep core strength to support a healthy, mobile and flexible spine. Today’s exercises are a baseline key for maintaining strength in glutes, hips, pelvis and core.

Welcome to day five of our Anti-Aging, fall prevention program. Exercises for all ages and all-time. We endeavor to answer this question:

“WHAT EXERCISES should I be including in my daily, or weekly, routine?” These exercises are a baseline of strength, mobility, flexibility and balance.

Repeat this class as often as you wish or return just to take a quick glance at the list of exercises below to make sure you are including them weekly in your routine. If you are following our complete workouts here on Gone Adventuring you are sure to get these in weekly.

Equipment Needed :     

Reformer and optional: bosu ball. Do know that if you do not have the bosu you can still entirely follow this class, I am just showing you options.😉

Class Level :     

ALL levels.

The Course of this Class :   

Our side lying leg series is a fabulous and wildly crucial series for the health of our pelvis, glutes and hips. It’s basic and can be done on the mat as much as the Reformer. Here we have the added benefit of resistance which is key to maintaining bone density and strength in our joints as we age. This exercise series is our main focus today as well as varying core exercises for both the “low” abdominals and the entire core.

Side lying leg swings, lifts, circles, clams and kicks.

Supine abs: double leg stretch. Frogs. Double leg straight leg stretch. High Vs.

Supine abs propped by bosu: Forward folds. Chest lifts. Criss cross. Supported V sits.

Side lying push ups.

Side lying upper body rotations.

Goals :     

Improve and maintain hip, glute, pelvis strength, mobility and flexibility for enduring longevity, gate and stride health, and spine health, mobility and flexibility. Continually exercise, build and maintain core strength. Move thoracic spine for full breath and mobility. Strengthen side form, alignment and ability to lift and move from this plane. Encourage optimal range of movement in joints. Healthy spines. Strong core. Better posture. Improve movement patterns. Age well.
