Plie Punches

on September 19, 2012

DIRECTIONS:  This exercise is primarily for the core, however, there is some great chest work gained, as well. Anchor the tube behind the back, under the arms. Hold on to the handles and choke up on the tube. Lower down into a plie squat and begin the single arm alternating punches. Focus on rotation at the rib cage while keeping the hips square.

REMINDERS:
  • Pull shoulders away from the ears.
  • Hold the plie squat with feet wide and thighs parallel to the ground (or as low as possible).
  • Keep core engaged throughout by drawing belly button towards the spine.
  • Keep head in alignment with the spine
  • Punch with control
  • B R E A T H E
MODIFICATIONS:
  • For less intensity, perform the punches without the tubing and/or come out of the plie a little bit.
