Welcome back to Day 4 of our "30 Days of Fitness" series. Every day for the month of November we will be posting an exercise that you can do with your loved one at home. Today's exercise is Partner Sit-ups.
Many of our clients need to increase their core strength. We will be showing more core exercises throughout the month, but this one that will help you bond with your child as it has more of a hands on approach.
1) Lay on the ground with your head back, knees bent, and feet flat on the ground.
2) Grasp you partners hands and sit up.
3) If you are having trouble sitting up, pull yourself up using your partners hands.
4) Return back to starting position and repeat.
