  • Contract your abdominal muscles throughout all exercises. Think of keeping your belly button pressed into your spine. This keeps you muscles close to your spinal column and provides spinal support.
  • During exercises when both feet are on the floor, keep your hips and spine in a neutral position.
  • Move fluidly without and throwing and jerking motions.
  • Breathe slowly and smoothly throughout exercises.
