  2. Begin rocking back and forth maintaining your hollow body form (keep abs and glutes tight).
  3. Be sure to keep your pelvis tucked under and lower back touching the floor.

2. RUNNING MANS

  1. Begin in a boat position with your abs tight, "run" your elbow to opposing knee.

  1. Begin lying with your arms and legs extended long.
  2. Perform a full sit-up with your legs extended long and arms extended overhead reaching toward the ceiling.
  3. Lower back down slowly to your starting position and repeat.
  4. Your lower back should be pressed into the mat, not arching.

4. 3-WAY TOE TOUCH CRUNCHES
