3x Lateral Plank Crawl
2x 180 Squat Jump
Coordinating how your hands and feet work together may prove to be trickier than you would suspect. Much like sudoku, movement patterns that specifically focus on opposite ends of the body help keep the brain young and sharp. Training your body to move as a unit – even with different tasks within that unit, is one of the most basic ways to keep your brain wrinkly. Did you know that as we age the brain starts to smooth out? Keeping those ridges requires actively challenging your brain to solve problems.
When moving laterally in plank position it is important to keep your step the same distance as your hands. If you step out really wide, you’ll have trouble keeping up. Keep the floor pushed away so you’re strong through the shoulders – separating the shoulder blades. Hips stay squared and your core in control.
‘Walk’ out about 3 steps and jump in for a 180 jump squat. Jump back out into plank and repeat in the opposite position.
This is a great combo to add mid-workout, or before your cardio session. It will really warm up the whole body!
