Free Exercise of the Week: Core Strength with Cross Lateral Movement: Really Challenging!

March 25, 2010

Super Body, Super Brain is the new fitness program for the brain and the body

Dear friends,

thanks so much for liking this section and keep doing my proposed exercises. You will be empowering your core and the brain.

Instructions

Exercise A (CORE 1)

From a standing  position, raise one leg and keep raised at all times. Arms are straight open to both sides. With the right hand lean down to touch the left ankle without losing the balance. This is one rep. Do it 5 times and change.

Exercise B (CORE 2)

From a standing  position, raise one leg and keep it raised at all times. Arms are ABOVE your head. With the right hand lean down to touch the left ankle without losing the balance. This is one rep. Do it 5 times and change.

Please send me your comments!

This exercise is:

Good for the Brain: You need to concentrate in postural alignment, balance, core stabilization. Cross lateral movement: When you raise the left arm and right leg you are forcing both brain hemispheres to communicate and work together.

Left, right brain hemisphere, coordination (basal ganglia, cerebellum)

Good for your body:

Core strength. When your body is in imbalance your core is really activated then it requires extreme precision and strength from the sensory proprioceptors
