This is a beginner’s exercise that will help create stability within the inner core and strengthen the muscles that support the spine. The further the resistance band stretches the greater the resistance, so it might take a moment to find your “sweet spot.” Be sure to keep your navel pulled in towards your spine throughout the entire movement.

You should be able to feel the kinetic chain working from your gluteus all the way up to your trapezius muscles. Be sure that your thumbs are facing upwards and that you are lifting everything off of the floor – chest, arms, thighs, everything!

Use this exercise to strengthen your inner core by keeping your navel as close in to your spine as possible throughout the entire movement. Keep your ass out of the air and be sure to use your full range of motion!

Some people have a tendency to pull with the arms, but in order to perform properly, your arms should remain stiff while your hips thrust through your forearms.
