Naomi Watt’s 3 Favorite Moves on Shape.com!

Check out our article on Shape.com featuring Anna Kaiser and how AKT INMOTION gets clients like Naomi Watts ready for the red carpet with 3 featured moves:

HIP PRESS

 Challenge your booty and shoulders with this amazing exercise! (10lb weight) Start by sitting on your right hip, supporting your weight with your right arm extended straight.  Place the left foot on the ground with the knee facing the ceiling.  Left leg is bent so that the knee is directly above the left ankle.  Left arm holds the 10lb weight.  As you press down into your right palm, lift your hips to the ceiling by pushing down into your left heel, and squeezing your gluts, as you extend the left arm (holding the weight) toward the ceiling.  Slowly return to the seated position, lowering the left arm.  Repeat 15-20x.

AIRPLANE

Abs and arms should be shaking if you really push yourself in this stability challenge! (medicine ball)  Place the medicine ball on the floor in front of you.  Balance yourself in plank, with your palms positioned in the middle of the ball, squeezing your inner thighs together.  Bend both legs, bringing your pelvis toward the back of the room, keeping your arms straight, and then SHOOT forward back into your original plank position.  Repeat 10-15x.

DIAGONAL LIFT

Full body is working to stabilize your core, while your gluts get a crazy lengthening burn!  (medicine ball)  Position yourself on the mat on all fours (quadraped).  Place the medicine ball on the floor to the left of you.  Extend your left arm to balance on the ball with your fingertips.  Right palm is on the floor directly under your right shoulder.  Extend the right leg to the right diagonal, keeping the leg completely straight.  As you balance, keeping the arm straight the entire time, lift your right leg up and lower it down, slowly, making sure your hips stay square to the mat.  Repeat 20x.
