I Never Pass Up An Opportunity To Get Some Core Gainz! This Morning's Movement Was These Advanced Windshield Wipers, Hard AF! But It's Over Now And I Managed To Get Just A Little Stronger This Morning Because I Pushed Myself Out My Comfort Zone !
I love-hate this move. Toes to bar is one of those gruesome core conditioning exercises that hits every fiber of your core - they not only require developing core muscles to get your toes to reach the bar, but also grip strength and technique. ------
It is an intermediate/advanced level move that anyone can work up to - there is no such thing as "I can't do that or could never." If you really want to execute this move but are struggling - start with basic moves that develop deep core muscles- from the basic plank (front and side), hollow rocks and holds, progressing to hanging knee raises - knees to elbow, L-holds. Anyone can do it, it just takes patience, and consistent practice of the above exercises that will get you there. -----
One client who I worked with over a period was ready and that first day she surprised herself that should could hang with knee raises. Like anything else practice makes perfect.
Learning to kip #toestobar Starting stuff is never easy. When I look back on my journey with strength, movement & mindset post babies there is one thing that stands out to me - I have learnt to be a beginner, again & again & again. Each time it is uncomfortable & can be frustrating but I always learn something new about my body, & about me. Its like one of those 'choose your own adventure' books - keep making choices, keep moving, keep playing. Start to see all that you can do rather than what you can't and the possibilities are endless
