    ⁃    10 total lunge and reach
    ⁃    10 inchworms (walk out, walk in, stand, no push up)

Skill work
The Perfect V-Up DOES Exist! (FINALE!)
3 rounds:

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

V-Ups
    ⁃    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!
