Our partner LAUFMAMALAUF presents and explains the fitness exercise: “Side Plank with Side Crunch” with your Croozer!
The exercise “Side Plank with Side Crunch” is ideal for a well-defined waist and a strong core. Here’s everything you need to know, in a nutshell:
Who? For mother and baby Where? Indoors or outdoors How often? Depending on your fitness level: start with 8-10 repetitions per side (alternating), followed by a short break; then do another 8-10 reps General information: Be sure to secure the wheels of your Croozer using the parking brake Info for the mother: Focus on keeping your stomach and pelvic-floor muscles tightened during the exercise; keep your breathing even and calm
Position yourself in a side plank, resting your right hand on the front of the Croozer
Your right hand should be directly under your shoulder, and your arm in a vertical position
Your body should form a diagonal line from your feet to the back of your head
Stretch your left arm over your head
Keep your stomach and pelvic-floor muscles tight
Bring the knee of your left leg towards the elbow of your left arm, then extend them again
When performing this movement, your left knee should point upwards, not forwards!
Do several repetitions; then repeat on the other side Easier version: Your right leg is bent, with your knee resting on the ground
Keep your shoulders away from your ears
Keep your head in line with your spine
