Half Curl

GOAL: Strengthen the abdominal muscles - challenge the neutral stability of the pelvis and spine against flexion

SET-UP: Supine

PROPS: No Props

REPETITIONS: 8

DETAILS: Inhale - send the breath into the back and sides of the ribs. Exhale draw the belly button to spine to stabilize the pelvis, lift and lengthen the head and shoulders off the mat. Do not change the position of the pelvis or low back as you curl up. Inhale hold this position and maintain abdominal connection. Exhale lengthen back to the start position.
