Feb 10 #29daysoftabatas, #thrivemovementmoment

Day 10 and it is similar to day three last week, it is a combo tabata of leg lifts and bridges, 4 sets of each exercise, 8 sets total and each set is 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest= 4 minutes total. For the leg lifts,we lay flat on our back, making sure that our head, legs, lower back, and bottom are all in contact with the floor. It helps me to put my hands or a small towel under the curve of the lower back if needed to get  my back totally flat. We engage our stomach muscles and pull our belly button towards our spine. We 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. Happy hump day!  Over a third of the way through the challenge!
