Move Targets: Lower abdominal muscles


Step 1: Lie flat on your back with your hands down at your sides, palms down. For extra comfort, you can place them underneath you, between your butt and lower back.


Step 2: Keeping your legs straight, raise them up until they form a 90-degree angle with your upper body.


Step 3: Drop them down and to your left, keeping your legs straight the entire time.


Step 4: Now rotate them to the center, straight in front of you about 6 inches off the floor.


Step 5: Swoop them to your right side, keeping the same hovering distance from the floor. Pull them back to that 90-degree angle. That’s one rep.


Note: If your lower back starts to arch and is no longer touching the ground, bend your knees and do not drop your legs as low.
