Learn to do the Ab Draw properly as the first step to engaging deep abdominal muscles that assist in support and power for sports and everyday activity.
- Lie on your back, knees bent and soles of your feet on the floor, letting your back arch naturally. You should be able to place your hands beneath the small of your back.
- Draw your navel in toward your back while pressing your back against the floor. Be sure to use ab muscles, not leg muscles. Your hamstrings should be completely relaxed; if not, you are not engaging the ab muscles properly.
- When you know that you are engaging your deep abs, hold the position for about 30 seconds.
Once you’ve mastered Ab Draw try Ab Draw with Partner Resistance.
