I love open back styles! It’s simple, it’s sexy, it’s different AND it shows off all of the hard work I’ve been doing in getting closer to my goals of handstands and pull ups. And personally, that’s what clothes should do! They should accent your best features. Not make you feel like you need to have a certain body type to wear them!
YOU wear the clothes, the clothes doesn’t WEAR you!
Okay. *deep breath* I can get very animated when I speak about self-love and personal identity and how it all fits into society and fashion…
But I digress,
Today is for #mondaymovement and it features one of my favorite compound movements. I have no idea what it’s called (you’ll come to realize this as you start to hear some of the names I give the movements) but hey ho!
#MondayMovement: walking plank-pressup aka: The Turtle
*Stay up on your toes, feet wider is easier
*Straight strong back with core tight and glutes flexed (looking for a peach bum!)
* Press up pushing through fingers and outside of hands
- No weight, two cones a few paces away, walk on hands to one cone then press up, then to the other cone and press up – that’s one rep
- Heavier or lighter weight
- Variation in pressups for different targeted muscles
This movement has been truly a favourite and it’s great because you can do it at home as well!
It’s been fun embodying my childhood superheros, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
What’s your favorite move of the week?!
