Exercises of the Week #29 - Yoga Ball and Ab Exercise #3

Straight Legged Hip Ups from Live Functional on Vimeo.

Core and Back Stability

+ Feel shoulder blades connect into the ground, keep spine as straight as possible, do not loose the integrity of the spine.

+ As you press your feet into the ball, feel the hips leave the ground without any vertebra of the spine shifting, this takes a ton of attention.

+ Squeeze the butt to full hip extension and hold of 2 seconds at the top, now slowly reach the butt toward the ground, do not just flop down.

2-3 sets 10-15 reps exhale as push, inhale as you go down PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR BODY
