Here is a fav from today's workout! These are very challenging. When I first attempted doing these, I made is as far as the down position and decided they are impossible! It was hard at first to know what muscles I was supposed to use to get back up. The answer was any muscle I could possible tighten! It is definitely a difficult move, but it is doable!! A full set is possible!
A tip - if you don't have a hard surface, you can use round pie pans on carpet...that is my method! Just make sure you are in control the whole time, nice and slow on the way down.
Give these a go and see what you think!
Kneel on the floor and place two small towels on the floor in front of you. Lean forward and place your hands on top of the towels. Your arms should be straight and your wrists should be in line with your elbows. Don't bend at the waist; your body should be one long line from your shoulders to your knees. Lift your feet off the floor and cross them.
STEP 2)Slide your hands out to the side to lower your body toward the floor
STEP 3)Continue to slide your hands until your upper body is just a few inches from the floor. Return to starting position and repeat.
Make sure your movements are controlled so you don't do a face plant into the floor. And don't lift that butt too high up in the air — this takes the resistance off your upper body and defeats the purpose of the move.
