Developing the Muscles of the Core/Abdomen

  Back to the Muscle Group

1)      Start by laying flat on the

floor or a mat. For added support hold your hand down towards your hips to keep from rocking.


2)      Begin by pulling your knees upwards as you find your balance point in your lower back region and bring your upperbody up at the same time in an arching motion.


3)      Contract and squeeze

your abdominal muscles

as you raise your body to form a "V" in the middle. 


4)      Always try to keep from jerking or using momentum so you can better target the muscles involved.
