Developing the Muscles of the Core/Abdomen

Back to the Muscle Group

1)      Start by laying flat on the

floor or a mat. Rest your arms straight over your head prior to beginning this exercise.


2)      Begin by bringing your toes and finger tips upwards at the same time as you find your balance point in your lower back region keeping your arms and legs straight throughout the movement.


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.
