8th day of Fitness

8th day of Fitness- March series

Goal of movement- the goal of the marching movement is to improve hip strength with side to side weightshift, improve balance with the signle leg weightshift, improve sequencing with the alternating pattern to midline, and improve general strength through the trunk, core and gluteals.

Start with the first progression, if it is too easy then progress to the next progression until you are feeling that you are being challenged, but still able to maintain the integrity of the exercise. Remember to take pictures/videos, continue working on exercises previous and record all in 12 Days of Fitness tracker.
