2 rounds of:
⁃ 10 3-position Arch lift-off (legs only, arms only, legs + arms together)
⁃ 10 total lunge and reach
⁃ 10 inchworms (walk out, walk in, stand, no push up)
The Perfect V-Up DOES Exist! (FINALE!)
Alternating Leg V-Up
⁃ 16 total reps
⁃ Legs stay straight
⁃ Opposite hand reaches for the toe/shoe laces/ankle/shin of the opposite leg
⁃ Try to achieve a “hollow” position with your rib cage at the top (when hand touches the toe)
Snap To Hollow
⁃ 8 reps in quick succession
⁃ Start FLAT but ENGAGED on the ground
⁃ Heels together, toes pointed, legs squeezed, gluteus squeezed
⁃ Arms overhead (advanced) or by your side
⁃ “Snap” to hollow body position
⁃ Low back should be pressed into the ground, rib cage down
⁃ 8 reps
⁃ Perfect form!
⁃ The order of the skill work is important: starting with the “alternating v-up” to practice the range of motion, then the “snap to hollow” to practice staying tight in the legs – both legs moving at the same time – initiating the hollow
⁃ This is the opportunity to put it all together!
