Featured move - 3rd sit-up - the reverse lift

written by Jody Miller, M.A., RCEP
on Thursday, 13th November ,2014

Today's featured move is a reverse lift. It targets the lower abdomen -­ the transverse abdominis muscle.

Lie on the mat, lift your legs, knees together and flexed gently. Your arms are down at your sides. As you tighten/contract the lower abdominal muscles lift the hips slightly off the floor, pause, and then slowly lower the hips back to the floor. The movement is a lift and lower rather than a punch and drop.The chin should be tucked in and the shoulders should remain fixed on the floor. Repeat for a series of 10-20 as tolerated.
