Try This Combo Core & Posture Movement

November 7, 2020by TonyaTittle

When our trainers are trying to get the most out of our clients investment in their health we often put a program together that may have combo movements. This helps to respect both the clients time and can make the plan more efficient. Regardless of if we are onsite at Energy Fitness studio in Downtown Memphis or Virtually Personal Training our clients via Zoom these moves still prove to be challenging and effective.

Try this up up down down plank with a reverse fly for shoulders/posture. Note that my feet are wide to provide a good base of support. Depending on your strength and flexibility in your core and hips you may have to do the movement on your knees. If you do the full plank (on your toes) try to do a few reverse fly movements without holding weight as some of you may need to start with this anyway. Look down or video yourself doing it and see how much your hips are rotating. You want to try your best to keep your hip bones level to the floor.

Notice in the video below that I have a slight turn to the right with my right hip when lifting my right arm to the same side. This is much more pronounced when I train clients as I often have to remind them to (pay attention) and do this trick….When lifting the right arm rotate the right hip toward the left hip. You might feel like this is an exaggerated move but likely it will be more on the path to being performed correctly.

Try this combo move for 10-12 reps on each side for 2 or three sets. Try a downward dog or pigeon pose stretch for 30 seconds before moving on to the other side if you need a break or just catch your breathe for 20 seconds.
