So, the SHAPE team tried the paper pick-up challenge yesterday, and we had so much fun! This internet trend that’s taken off in the fitness community worldwide requires you to stand on one foot, and bend yourself over to pick up a folded piece of A-4 paper. Now, if you want it ‘easy’, you keep the folder paper vertically, but for a challenge leave it horizontally. Well, after trying it out, all we can say is that it’s a very challenging move: with the paper either way! Why? The paper challenge tests your strength, stability and mobility. You’ll need strong glutes and hamstrings to slowly and carefully lower your body on one leg while your core must be on point to keep the balance. This also tests your flexibility as you bend down to reach for the paper while managing the legs. If you’ve tried this, and weren’t successful. Try again after a few weeks of strengthening exercises like lunges, curtsy lunges, one legged-squats, pigeon pose to open up the hips, and core moves. Try it, show us how your #paperchallenge  turned out. Tag us in your video! And, good luck 🙆🏻‍♀️ . . . #shapemalaysia  #shapeproud  #fitness  #fitspo  #health  #healthy  #workout  #motivation  #gym  #workout  #homeworkout  #shapesweatfie  #paperpickupchallenge  #paperpickup  #shapemysquad
