AB Moves: Bow and Arrow Abs

Not sure about you, but the Avant-Barre team loves channeling ultimate badass Katniss Everdeen. Have you tried this move in class before?

bow and arrow abs (aka “katniss abs”) — Great for transversus abdominis muscles and obliques. Sit on the floor with your feet hip width apart. sit up tall and extend both arms in front of your shoulders with your palms facing inward. lean back keeping your posture straight. Pull one elbow back behind your waist and twist slightly toward your bent elbow looking back behind your shoulder. Feel your abs catch you as you recline. Return to your starting position and repeat on the other side. Do 20-30 reps at varying speeds.
