Another brain challenging move from Tracy, the balancing aspect isn’t actually as hard as it looks, I found the hardest part to be going from plank to one knee on the floor, it feels so unnatural but no doubt that’s building new neural pathways just as Tracy intended.
This move is tricky! I thought I was good with the balance stuff, but this move is definitely hard. It feels like Tracy is moving in slow motion, how does she manage to have her arm lifted for so long? Your brain is definitely engaged in this workout, I’m really looking forward to when I can master this!
Time: 1 minute
Areas worked: Legs
Equipment needed: 2X 1lb ankle weights
Tracy makes this move look so effortless, she just flicks her leg easily into the air! I don’t have a mirror so I can’t tell if I’m matching her range of movement but it certainly doesn’t feel like I am. There is some knee swivelling in this move as well so get some padding for your knee if needed. Thankfully there aren’t too many reps of this move as I feel like my form definitely isn’t right and I’m pushing some unnecessary pressure on my upper back.
I am loving all of your videos SO much! Ok before you start to do the angle switch just slowly try the heel stretch gently. What I really care about is the direction change in the hip. The leg is a lever of resistance. Use your lower abs. I have on 1.5 ankle weights. You can or you totally don't have to. ❤️ #aintyourmamabodychallenge
This move is so much easier than the majority of the Ain’t Your Mama Body Challenge moves- no ankle weights, not even shoes! And it’s one really easy fluid movement, as opposed to multiple moves and crazy balances and knee swivels.
This isn’t as hard as it looks although it’s still a bit tricky, you’re really working on your balance and co-ordination, which is especially hard when you try to do it from the opposite side. You really feel like it’s working everywhere, especially with the hip dips as well.
Even though there are 3 moves in this sequence it’s actually a lot easier then the majority of the moves on the body challenge because they’re not super hard “circus” moves and the pace is a lot slower.
It’s nice to have a break from all the leg moves on the body challenge and do some abs and actually I find this a lot easier then the leg moves.
