ENGAGE YOUR CORE!
Third, How can this help my fitness journey?
Knowing how to properly engage the core can help a lot. You'll find that it is easier to lift weights, you'll be less wobbly in Yoga, those climb intervals during Spinning seems lighter on the legs, and you can finally reach your toes when you bend.
I wanna share with you my flexibility progress after I learned how to engage my core properly.
My method before was just to reach using my hand, see the bottom part of the video where I seem to be stuck and very unflexible? I've done that for years, not knowing there is a better way to stretch.
The top part of the video was taken after a few days of learning how to engage my core, I became a bit more flexible by practicing everyday and by following all the instructions I learned from my friend.
Shout out to my Personal Trainer friend Lanel Hosomi for helping me become more flexible. Check her Instagram, Lanel Hosomi Fitness, she has videos for your Pilates home practice.
Now get up and ENGAGE YOUR CORE!
Always consult with your doctor before trying any workout routine.
