Hey everyone! Happy Monday to ya 🙂
Here’s this week’s Workout Move of the Week, the bicep curl and plie squat. This is a compound move that works the biceps and legs, and your abbies if you hold them in tight 😉
-Good posture with shoulders back, chest proud, abs tight and booty tucked in
-If it hurts, DON’T DO IT! Only go down as far as you feel comfortable
-Aim for 2-3 sets of 10-12 reps
-Keep your elbows close to your torso
-Think about your biceps while you do this move; visualizing the muscle often helps with muscle recognition and can help you to get more out of each move
-Feet are wide and toes pointed out, so that as you plie your knees do not extend past your toes; if your knees are going over your toes, take a wider step
-Keeping your upper body tall and straight, think “sink down” as you perform the movement- it’s like your upper body is sliding against a wall, not forward or backwards
-Knees go out, rather than forward
-As you come up, avoid locking out the knees and squeeze that booty!!!
Hope you enjoy 😀
As always, please let me know if you’d like me to do a variation of one of your favorite exercises!
