Coaching Points

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