Core Component #2
Your new Core Component builds on the exercises from Week 1 & 2.
So far, you’ve been working on foundational core exercises that focus on creating support around the pelvis and spine. The exercises in your Core Component #2 are sure to challenge your core muscles even more. Remember to focus on maintaining stability and find a connection to your core muscles just before you start moving.
Feel free to stick with the exercises from Core Component #1 until you feel ready for more challenge.
Signs that an exercise is too challenging for you right now:
your back arching as you move
your pelvis tucking under as you move
your belly pushing outward, bulging
a sense of bearing down or heaviness in the pelvic floor
holding your breath and not able to breathe comfortably through the exercise
You will need:
a towel, small blanket or pillow (optional)
Total time: about 10 minutes
