You'll feel more awake after practicing this sequence a few times in the beginning of your day! It's guaranteed to bring your heart rate up, increase your sense of balance and get you going for the day!
Practice the roll down a few times then progress into plank:
1) ONCE YOUR HANDS REACH THE GROUND START WALKING THEM FORWARD (do your best to have your entire palms touching the ground),
2) WALK AS SLOWLY AS YOU NEED SO YOUR BODY DOES NOT ROCK SIDE TO SIDE TOO MUCH (also don't make your body rigid, you're suppose to let things flow),
3) WALK PUSHING YOUR TRUNK AWAY FROM THE GROUND (this is supposed to increase your awareness of shoulder stability),
5) DON'T ALLOW YOUR TUMMY TO COLLAPSE (connect your limbs to your trunk).
6) RETURN AND REPEAT
(check note bellow on how to perform if you have osteoporosis, osteopenia and herniated disc).
