100 A Day to B Strong Fitness Challenge: Day 28

Day 28 is all kinds of shoulder stability & mobility.

Our shoulder is a super complex joint & very prone to injury because of all the muscles running through that area & our ability to move it so freely. I love doing exercises like these whenever I feel like my chest, shoulders & neck are tight. The blood flow to that area when you’re moving it really helps to release tension. It’s that perfect “1 more day this week” stress-relief kinda workout ;-)

This workout includes one of my FAVORITE plank exercises: spider crunches! Here are a few things to be mindful of as you go through the motions:

  • breath ;-)
  • keep your lats engaged & abdominals pulled tight to prevent your rib cage from popping out
  • squeeze your glutes to ensure that your lower back doesn’t arch/your pelvis doesn’t sag toward the ground
  • keep your pelvis & shoulders as square to the ground as possible.
  • when you reach your arm side, firmly press your **fingertips** into the ground, that way when you lift the foot on that side you won’t feel like you’re going to roll right over haha
