Day 20! Sidekick
Another beautiful day for an epic mountain bike session at Mystic Mountain in Bright. The climb up to the top is pretty hurty, but worth it for the decent 😁 💖 followed with some Pilates of course! ⭐ Lying on your left side, in a straight line with your legs in a slight diagonal in front of you. ⭐ Supporting your head with your left hand and placing your right hand onto the mat in front of you. ⭐ Lift your right leg away from your left leg to hip height. ⭐ Exhale to kick your right leg forward twice ⭐ Inhale to reach long through your leg as you sweep it back into an extension. ⭐ Repeat 5 or more kicks before changing sides.
Tip- Keep your pelvis still and core stable as your leg moves through space.
Check that your hips snd shoulders are stacked, one on top of the other.
Try to keep the kicking leg at hip height throughout this exercise. ⭐ Beginners- you can do this! Keep your leg movements smaller until your flexibility improves!
Benefits 🤸♀️ strengthen glutes, hamstrings, abdominals spinal extensors.
