Synopsis:

FLAMINGO

Power Obliques! Are you afraid of shrinking? Getting shorter with age?  The solution must be in your powerful muscles at both sides of your trunk.

How many times do you reach to open a door, to shake someone’s  hand, or turn your torso to change directions?  Well, your Oblique muscles are engaged in maximum muscular activity to do the most simple of our tasks. Now think about when you are sitting down: your body is crunched and your oblique muscles at both sides of your waist are smashed like sweet potatoes and then what happens? Your back starts to hurt and you feel you need  a stretch. That is exactly what I  feel right now and I just started to write!

Ready to challenge your core, agility and strength in one move? This exercise will target two of the most difficult body areas to tone: Your waist and your gluts! You will suddenly get the best of a dancer and a basketball player. Give a try to this movement and bring the best out of you!
