This sequence of movements, when practiced regularly, will help you improve your footwork, your core engagement and therefore your core stability and your overall posture.
Foot work is the foundation of every movement. It helps to create core tension and this connects to good posture.
Foot work is essential to all movement and is going to determine the quality of your movements.
When you footwork is misaligned, either when stationary or in movements, you will form bad habits that will create compensations that lead to pain and eventually injury.
Perfect footwork, core engagement and posture will help you improve how you move exponentially, both inside and outside of the gym.
The video shown below is running in the gym to provide you with a resource as you learn these moves. The trainer team is available to answer questions and to provide additional guidance, so don't be afraid to ask questions. However, taking the time to work your way through these movements, thinking about how your body feels while you're doing them, and figuring out adjustments as you hone in on the movement will help you create long term connections between the brain and body that will benefit you both inside of the gym.
Be patient with yourself as you learn these movements, and most importantly have fun with the process!
