STARTS TOMORROW! 🤗 Day 1: #SplitLife2019 Mobility + Strength work: Tabletop leg lifts + rotations - So, we’re working on the splits with this challenge. Most important part? In addition to working flexibility we also need to work the strength aspect as well. Why? Because you want to create a stable foundation to avoid injury and find comfort in your split. If your hips are “super open” the muscles you use in your split (hammies, quads, piriformis etc.) are weak or lacking awareness in your pose you don’t have a cohesive unit for greatness - where is the support?!😝 - Tips: * keep your hips square and lift to a 90 degree angle, allowing your knee to stay in line with your hip * slow and controlled movements is what we’re looking for here (this video is sped up x2) * when doing rotations, start small and gradually get bigger with your circles - work the entire circle allll the way around * keep your core engaged - pit of the belly in and up * BREATHE!! * 10 reps on each side * rest in wide legged child’s pose - Not too late to join us! Check my story highlights for the flyer and rules on how to enter and possibly win a prize from one of our awesome sponsors 🙌🏽 - Sponsors: @vitalproteins @liforme @lunalifestyleco Check with @yogawithdavina for Day 2! #yogi #loveyourself #knowyourworth #yoga
