This weeks challenge is two fold. I am including an exercise as well as a nutrition goal, as you know nutrition and exercise goes hand in hand.
Pilates Spine Twist:
The Spine Twist increases spinal rotation and it strengthens the core.
Setup: Sit up with your legs straight ( bend the knees slightly if you have tight hamstrings),inner thighs zipped together. Reach your arms to shoulder height, inhale and rotate your torso to the right, pulsing twice with a sniffing breath. your inner thighs should remained zipped and your flexed feet should not move during the exercise. A great way to practice this move is sit facing a wall and keep your glued to the wall as you rotate.
Exhale return to the starting position and rotate to the left.
Perform this exercise 8-10 times.
Instead of your usual lettuce, kale or spinach rotation, why not try a new vegetable powerhouse. Venture out of your comfort zone and maybe add one, two or more of the following to your diet. I have included links to recipes on how to prepare each if you need some ideas.
If you have a favorite way to prepare your vegetables please share.
Feel free to share and comment. Have a great week.
