(A) Single Leg Over-Head Abdominals
Standing with your back to a band or a pully connection point grasp a handle with both hands so your palms are facing away from you. Walk forward slightly until you feel tension on the band/pully. Brace your core, set your scapula and pack your neck. Raise your arms straight overhead until they are in line with your head. Now balance on your right leg and slowly bend forward through your right hip as your left leg kicks straight back. DON’T GO TOO FAR FOWARD AND LOSE YOUR LOWER BACK LORDOSIS!! Focus on your left glute contracting as it goes back and forward to the start position; this will help with your balance and enable you to stay stable. Return to the start position and finish as many reps as you can while keeping perfect form. Aim for 3 sets of 12-15 reps per leg. If you can accomplish multiple reps and sets of this exercise you not only have a very strong and stable core you have great glute strength and great balance!
