The Body – Our collab with Super Elixir

We created a 4-Part prop free workout for the 30 Day Super Elixir Challenge. Check it out.

Series 1 – Upper Body

For anyone who wants to strengthen and tone their upper back and arms (while simultaneously opening their chest) in 5 minutes. No props needed for this two-part upper-body blast. Target: Triceps, Back, Posture. Time: 7 Minutes.

Series 2 – Lower Body

A lower-body bridging sequence targeting your glutes, hamstrings and inner-thighs. You won’t need a magic circle to feel your inner-thighs in this series.  Target: Inner-thighs, Hamstrings, Glutes. Time: 5 Minutes.?Wanna make it a game?

Grab a credit card and think of a purchase you want. Now place the credit card between your inner thighs. If you can keep it there until the very last sequence where we add open/close leg movements… you deserve to make that purchase. If the credit card drops… repeat (and still buy it).

 

Series 3 – Core

Side planks are the exercise to do for a strong core. Moving into side-bending and rotation – is so important for spinal health. So if chiselling your waist isn’t enough – it will also build upper-body & glute strength. Take 5 Minutes to strengthen your core. Target: Everywhere. Time: 5 Minutes.
 

Series 4 – Standing Sculpt

You deserve Toned ?and??to go with your stronger core.  You will strengthen the buns & guns in less than 10-minutes. All you need is a wall. Target: Peach, Triceps. Time: 10 Minutes.

MVMT X WelleCo

Workout with WelleCo and The Movement Society.

The ultimate swap is here with our 6-part series collaboration with WelleCo. Let me show you why swapping your pilates ball for Nourishing Protein tins might be the swap you are looking for!

01

Pelvic Tilt

STEP 1: Begin lying on your back, arms by your side, knees bent. Place one heel on top of your Nourishing Protein tin and the other foot flat on the ground beside it.

STEP 2: Peel your spine up and off the ground segmentally until the weight is balanced between your shoulder blades. Roll your spine back down vertebrae-by-vertebrae to your start position.

CHALLENGE: Repeat in single leg. First, try with your leg bent at 90 degrees, then for more challenge extend the leg straight. Hello Hamstrings!

02

Shoulder Bridge

STEP 1: Perform each leg position peeling up and hinging up. First with the foot down, then with the leg in table top and finally with the leg extended straight to the ceiling.

STEP 2: To challenge your core. Hold your bridge position as you lower and lift the opposite leg. First start with a bent leg and then advance by straightening the leg.

CHALLENGE: Try leg circles, your goal is keeping your hips stable, square and lifted as you move.

03

The Teaser

STEP 1: Begin lying on your back, arms overhead and the Nourishing Protein tin behind one heel.

STEP 2: Lift your hands above your head and roll up segmentally to a tall seated position sliding the tin towards your body. Return to start position.

CHALLENGE: Bend your opposite knee or use a straight leg to hover whilst you repeat this movement. To really challenge yourself, place the tin between your feet and lift arms and legs into a teaser “V” position.

04

Rolling Like A Ball

STEP 1: Place the Nourishing Protein Tin between your ankles. From a tall seated position, lift your feet off the mat, scoop abdominals and creating a ‘round flexed position’. Your weight balanced just behind your sit bones.

STEP 2: Begin holding your thighs for support. Maintain the round shape of your body as roll back and fourth.

STEP 3: Increase the challenge by placing the tin behind the legs, or between the elbows and knees. To really step it up – grab a second tin and combine the two.

CHALLENGE: Straighten your legs and complete your rolling action. First try with your hands holding your ankles. Then, see if you can keep the tin between your hands and shins.

05

The Roll Up

STEP 1: Begin in a tall seated position with legs straight and the Super Elixir Protein Tin in your hands. Roll spine segmentally to the mat. Arc arms up and overhead. To return, lift arms up first, then continue to roll yourself back up and over towards your toes, before re-stacking back to a tall seated position.

STEP 2: Repeat with arms remaining overhead the whole time, or add a second tin under your ankles.

CHALLENGE: Once you have rolled back onto the ground, lift your legs up to a 90-degree angle, then carefully over your head to a roll over position.

 

 

06

Tendon Stretch

STEP 1: Begin seated with hands shoulder distance apart, fingers facing forward. The Nourishing Protein Tin should rest on the fleshy part of your calf when the leg is straight. Supporting leg bend.

STEP 2: From your seated position. Drive through your supporting heel and lift hips, heart and chest off floor so that your body creates a long diagonal. Lower back to start position.

STEP 3: Take it to the next level by rolling the tin underneath you as you move up and down.

CHALLENGE: Raise your right leg to a 90-degree angle, and straighten it as you continue to repeat the exercise.

MVMT mystery prop revealed

The mystery prop adding punch to the current 8-week challenge are Gliding Discs. Thought our standing series was challenging? Wait until you try out the Gliders. They may look harmless, but they really pack some punch! 

SHOP GLIDERS

Meet you on the Mat. xx

GLIDING DISCS

WHY GLIDERS?

My favourite exercise to do and teach is a standing exercise on the reformer called Scooter. It is a great standing exercise to work on balance and coordination, as well as build glute, hamstring and leg strength. It teaches you how to keep your spine and pelvis square, as you move your leg in space. The reformer provided a “moving surface” in the form of a carriage, which is now replicated with the gliding discs. We start the movement holding onto a bar or chair, then challenge balance by removing the base of support as form and strength improves.

 While I wish I could, I cannot cart 15 reformers to class. The gliding discs allow for fun new variations traditionally performed on the reformer to be done on the mat. Low impact, high result movements with little impact on your joints. We are so excited for you to feel the “glider” effect.

Build a bridge

Bridging is the exercise to master. When performed correctly, it will:

  • Increase segmental spinal mobility
  • Reduce lower back tension
  • Lengthen the front of your of your thighs and hips
  • Strengthen your glutes and hamstrings.

ONE: GOLDEN RULE- SET UP FOR SUCCESS

Start lying on your back in neutral spine: back of head, shoulders, hips and feet touch the mat. Feet parallel, hip distance apart, heels under knees. The further your feet from your seat, the more your hamstrings will tend to dominate. Arms down by your side, or at your hip bones for feedback to ensure they stay level. 

TWO: LETS PEEL UP AND DOWN

Screen Shot 2016-01-09 at 12.36.29 pm

  1. Peel up. Roll pelvis back, sending sitting bones towards the back of your knees, peeling spine up one vertebrae at a time until the weight rests just between the shoulder blades.  
  2. Articulate down one vertebrae at a time. Focus on softening through the breastbone and chest, to allowing the upper back to peel down first, then allow your mid back, lower back, and pelvis to follow.
  3. Repeat 6 – 8x or until your spine feels warm. 

Focus on each repetition as an opportunity to get more of the spine moving segmentally, gradually opening up and mobilising these rigid sections. Notice if there are certain parts of your spine that move as a block, rather than articulating independently.

KEY THREE: TOP TECHNIQUE TIPS

  1. Pelvis Position: At the top, check the top of your pelvis (pubic bone) is higher than hip bones (ASIS) to ensure your lower back is long and hips extended.  The more you can keep the top of your hips tipping back and tailbone reaching under, the more you will encourage your hips to open (and not your lower back to arch).
  2. Create Opposition: Create a sense of opposition as you roll down, keep the pelvis high and sit bones reaching towards heels as you initiate the movement down from the top of the spine. 
  3. Balance On Your Blades: Resist lifting too high. You do not want to allow the ribcage to flare, lower back arch or place unwanted pressure in the head, neck and shoulders. Only peel up until the base of your shoulder blades or as high as lower back remains uninvolved.
