Starting Position

  • Return to the starting position and repeat for the prescribed number of reps

Coaching Keys

  • Draw your belly button in without losing the curve in your lower back or feeling your rib cage expanding

  • Try to hold your pelvis still throughout the range of motion

You Should Feel It

  • This works your lower back and mobilizes your hips
