I’m Trevor, the personal trainer at Morningside Recovery. Today’s Morningside fitness challenge workout is something that you can use to measure how far you have come mentally and physically. Write down your time and try this workout again every few months to assess your progress!
- Pigeon pose is known as the king of hip openers. It increases mobility in your hips by working them from all angles.
- Start by placing your hands on the ground.
- Bring your right knee towards your right hand and the heel towards your left hip.
- Slowly lower your torso onto your leg.
- Reach your arms out as far in front of you as possible.
- Repeat on the other side.
Around The World
- Similar to the Pass Throughs we did the other day, grab a pvc pipe or a broom stick for this mobility exercise.
- Grab the stick with a wide enough grip so that your arms stay straight while you bring one arm up and around your head so that the stick is now behind you.
- Now with the other arm do the same thing from behind.
- Repeat that direction ten times then switch.
- Lay on your back with your arms extended out to the sides.
- Bring one leg straight up into the air and cross it over to the other side until your toe touches the ground.
- The goal is to keep the leg as straight as possible and your shoulders touching the ground throughout the entire movement.
