AB CORE WORKOUT
THE "POWERBOAT HOLD"
Ab Core Workout - The "Powerboat Hold"
|STEP 1||Begin by sitting on the floor with your legs and arms fully extended.|
|STEP 2||Lean back with your legs and arms (still) extended and straight in front of you. Lean back only as much as is needed to maintain balance in this position.|
|STEP 3||Hold this balanced position for the desired time limit.|
|STEP 4||Rest and repeat for the desired number of repetitions.|
|This exercise seems easy, but it's not. Holding the pose will challenge you. You might have to try a few times in order to get into a balanced position. |
This core exercise is not one of the most common ones that you may do for your core, but it's a great exercise to use a "mixer". In other words, it's great to use when you want to change-up your exercise routine. Toss it into the mix with other more traditional core exercises.
It's important to point out that this exercise needs to be executed precisely or it will not be effective and will have lower impact on the muscles it's intended to hit - your entire mid-section!
Thus, you may need to practice this movement for a set or two before you get the hang of it. Most people will have a problem with keeping their body balanced and in the right position. It's important not to give up; instead keep at it and you will get the mechanics of this exercise down in no time!
