This months core challenge is a smoker. Yes, it will give you lovely arms and tone abs but get ready to work ladies! Here's the set up:
1.) Get on your hands and knees
2.) Place your forearms on the ground with elbows under the shoulders and wrist in line with the elbows.
3.) Walk your legs out so you are in a forearm plank. A good forearm plank with your hips in line with your shoulders, belly pulled in, ribs closed and booty squeezed tight.
4.) Start to walk your feet toward your head, making your hips the highest point of your body. ( you will look like an upside down V, just like Alex in the above video).
5.) Keep looking at your feet, and push shoulder blades down and away from your ears.
6.) Inhale begin to slowly slide your whole body forward until you can drop your nose between your thumbs then exhale and push your self back to your original position.
7.) Repeat this move 5-10 times per set. Do 3-5 sets.
Have fun with it. :)

Michele has been my Pilates trainer for over a year now. Since working with her weekly, I have now regained the body I longed for after having three children. I am lean, happy, and feel strong and healthy. Her expertise regarding the body's structures is incredible. With each session I find myself more and more impressed with how easily she can alter the program to accommodate my particular needs of the day, and the results are truly amazing. She can motivate you beyond your own expectations but still never seems too demanding. I actually enjoy working with her immensely. All the compliments I get now are not too bad either! Give it a try with her, you will not be disappointed.
