Exercise Of The Week
Here at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Atlanta the health and wellbeing of our patients is a priority in everything we do! Besides eating well, exercise and having an active lifestyle is vital to support good health. Each week Dr McCluskey demonstrates a different exercise for everyone to try as well as setting a challenge for the week. This week it’s all about the abdominals-a problem area for many! It is important to remember that abdominal exercises alone will not give any one a flat stomach, eating healthy food and appropriate portions is also vital!
The Full Extension
This move can take a little while to conquer as it requires stability as well as abdominal strength, but stick with it! Full extensions utilize the entire core giving the upper and lower ab muscles work as well as using the entire core to stabilize. Try performing thirty of these each day for the next week and tell us if you see any improvement! Here’s how to perform one full extension:
1. Extend both legs and arms long
2. Reach up and over your head with your arms while simultaneously tucking the knees towards the chest.
3. Extend both arms out in front of you with knees tucked in to your chest
4. In a controlled motion extend both the arms and legs and return to your original position.
Watch as Dr McCluskey and our lovely Dani demonstrate this move!
