Ever wonder what you could be doing while pushing your child in a swing for what feels like hours (okay ... it's only a few minutes but still feels like a long time)? Since it's difficult for me to get hour-long workouts in during my day with two young kids, I look for ways to integrate various movements throughout my day. It took some creativity and practice but I finally got down this airplane move while pushing a swing.
This is a wonderful move for glutes and core (abdominal and back) muscles as well as practicing single-leg balance. In this super short (less than 5 minutes!) video I give step-step instructions and alignment tips to help you get most of the move.
Watch the video and practice at home with an imaginary swing and then try it the next time you’re at a playground. Have a great weekend and let us know how this goes. Thank you for watching and reading!
