So my creative mind went into overdrive today!! Time to BLAST your core with the Fire Dog Plank exercise.
Sometimes the smallest movements can give us the biggest fitness gains. Case in point: The Plank.
The plank is one of the BEST exercises for core conditioning, but it also works your glutes and hamstrings, supports proper posture, improve balance, reduce back pain, and TONE your belly!
So what do you get when you combine the downward dog yoga pose + a plank + the fire hydrant exercise?
I INTRODUCE YOU to the FIRE DOG PLANK!
In addition to the plank benefits listed above, here are the additional benefits of the Fire Hydrant and Downward Dog exercise.
Downward Dog: Builds bone density, wakes you up, eliminates stiffness and back pain, boosts circulation, improves calf/hamstring flexibility.
Fire Hydrant: Firms your butt, targets the small glute muscle (gluteus medius) which improves hip stability to help prevent knee and ankle injuries.
TAKE ACTION: Incorporate this move into your workout. Perform 3 sets of 8-12 repetitions.
