Spring Training #3

Spring is here! Let’s dust off winter with some heart-pumping spring training.  During the month of April, Prana Fitness is going to post daily one workout move or yoga pose that you can do at home, at a park, or anywhere.

April 3rd: Thigh Lift

#3

Begin in side plank, except place inner arch of top foot on the ground, ankle flexed to a strong 90 degree angle.  Bring the lower leg forward a bit.  Lift the inseam of the straightened lower leg up to the sky, then bring it back to ground, lift up, lower, repeat.  Keep a straight line from top leg’s ankle to the crown of the head- don’t let your hips dip below the straight body line. Pull belly into spine and keep tailbone tucked in. Unlock the lower arm’s elbow so it’s not hyper-extended.  Engage down into the ground especially with your thumb, forefinger, and top two corners of your palm.
