Sit Ups with Twist on a Short Box, Day 3
Yep, it’s our short box series today, sit ups with twist, round and flat back and side overs. We’ll move the spine in all directions today up on that box and challenge our core to hold flexion, extension and an elongated contraction. Focus on form and creating space constantly between the vertebrae through this series. No crunching or scrunching in the spine. This is a great series to learn elongated flexion and how to draw the abdominal wall up and backwards.
Welcome to Day 3 of our Core Strength Program, it’s the end of the week, I hope your core is feeling good and strong!
Equipment Needed :
Reformer and the short box. Today no extra props are included but if you really want to up the anti, you can add in a wooden weighted dowel, or the magic circle. Up to you!
Class Level :
The Course of this Class :
We follow the classical short box series today. Sit ups with twist is just a fun name but it’s basically that with: Round back, flat back, twist and lean, side overs, around the world and climb a tree. Straight forward flow. Remember if you are not feeling the challenge, add extra reps or a prop today is also optional. Create space in your spine as you work through your flexions and your flat back. Listen for the self tactile cues and use them to bring a greater mind-body awareness. Keep breathing throughout, and work that breath laterally and out of your belly.
See you in next week for another week of 3 core strength workouts.
