February 3 #29daysoftabatas, #thrivemovementmoment

Day 3 of our 29 days of tabatas, and today we are going to do a combo tabata of two exercises: leg lifts and bridges, 4 sets each, 8 sets total.  Each set is 20 seconds of intense work and 10 seconds of rest.  For the leg lifts we make sure that our head, legs, lower back, and bottom are all in contact with the floor. put your hands or a small towel under the curve of the lower back if needed to get back totally flat. Engage our stomach muscles and grasp the sides. Slowly lift our legs to a 90-degree angle, keeping our legs straight and not bending at the knees. Pause for a second, then slowly lower the legs back down, making sure to keep our lower backs on the floor at all times!  For the bridges, lie flat on your back with knees bent and feet hip width apart. Engage the glutes to lift the hips up as high as possible (make sure the lift is coming from our glutes and not our low back by keeping back straight and core engaged). Return back to center and repeat the movement. I like to go back and forth between the leg lifts and bridges as they balance out my hips.
