Posted: Oct 13 2020
Check out these awesome springboard tips from Andrea Sepand and make sure to head over to her page for even more inspo.
Exercising at the springboard is a great option because the use of the springs keeps the muscles under constant tension and also creates muscle balance.
The focus of these 2 exercises is to stretch and create flexibility in the hips and hip joints, along with strengthening the lower abs.
•Starting with legs at 90 degrees allows the hip extensors (hamstrings & glutes) to fire up and lower the legs while resisting the pull of the springs.
•Pelvis and sacrum are anchored to the mat and spine is imprinted.
•Maintain core, glute and hamstring connection during the movements.
These exercises can also be done at home without a springboard. Arms should be extended long by either side of the body. Keep spine imprinted and avoid arching of the back. Move mindfully with control, and follow the tips above.
Save this for later, or you can eagerly grab your mat and get moving.
Try doing 3 -6 sets of each exercise.
