This blog post is the first of 2018, I am excited and feeling a bit warm in my heart, I thought it will be pretty nice to share an awesome fitness routine with gymnastic rings for core strength.
The couple months I have them dedicated to my Instagram handle; I even joined #30dayyogaliving leaded by Kino Yoga and his online company Omstars. I add this short practices to my hypertrophy training.
Well there is no news that I love the single legged deadlift; first of all because is an exercise that you can do everywhere at anytime and keeps you fit and strong. Second it is a great move to build and keep your balance skills on top. Keep in mind to always use your legs and keep your torso in line.
HOW TO MASTER SINGLE LEGGED DEADLIFT
Keep your weight in between your big toe and your heels, breath and stay focused on your movement, observe how your body and mind is reacting and let it pass with your goal in mind.
Ring pull ups can be a bit harder than normal pull ups, since we are focusing in the core muscles we will bend the knees and pull with the knees bent. Do about 3-5x
HANGING HALF LEG RAISE
Why is so effective to exercise the hanging half leg raises? Well it totally build the strength on the lower abs and hip flexors.
We are talking core muscles here which involves the abdominals, the lower back muscles, the pelvis muscles and the glutes basically. Also you use the upper back and arms to pull. If you want to know exactly the name of the muscles, I have written them in several past posts about core training.
