Alternating Supermans | Nichole Mellison
Another great exercise for your core is alternating supermans. They are made even more effective when performed on the unstable surface of the Exercise Star.
Stretching out with opposite hand and foot while balancing on the Exercise Star on your stomach is not easy, but is very effective for strengthening your core as well as your glutes, shoulders, hamstrings, and lower back. It’s a great overall exercise. Move slowly with purpose and awareness through each movement. Feel each muscle as it works and feel your abdomen as it rests on top of the Exercise Star. As the surface below you moves, your muscles will need to fire automatically to help you maintain balance. There’s no thinking, just reacting to the slight movements of the unstable surface.
This type of training is helpful to train the body to maintain body awareness and body balance. it’s incredibly effective and efficient. There’s no lost time as you work many muscles at once.
As always, watch Nichole for proper technique and repeat what she does — when you’re ready.
