2014 Mission #1…A B.you-tifully Toned Bubble Butt!!!

Strategy:  B.Silque Lifted Crab!!!!

 

Talk about a bubble burner…Lifted Crab will hurt so good and get you that toned bubble butt you’ve always wanted!  This exercise uses your  body weight and the silque as resistance to work your outer bum.  Begin by cradling your entire back side, from under your seat to over you head.  Hands and arms relax in an overhead prayer position.  Make sure your legs are fully extended toward the ceiling with feet flexed.  You will get the most resistance and benefit if you allow your toes to peek out the back of the silque as pictured down below!  

Once you’re in position, begin to press out on the silque, opening the legs wide with the goal of a straddle.  You will feel the burn instantly in your outer glute muscles!  This exercise uses your entire body’s weight as resistance as you press your legs open and contract the bubble.  Check out perfect form below:
