Lie on your back with a small gap underneath your lower back (big enough to fit a grape), bend your knees and have your feet flat on the floor. Interlock your hands behind your head and relax your shoulders down away from your ears.
Breath out as you lift up into an abdominal curl, drawing your ribcage down towards your hips and keeping that small little gap underneath your lower back. Imagine you are trying to fit into a really tight pair of pants as you curl up!
Breath in and lower your head and chest back down. Repeat this exercise for 1 minute!

2. AB CURL WITH CIRCLE

Place a Pilates ring in between your thighs and give it a little squeeze so that your muscles are already starting to work! Interlock your hands behind your head and relax your shoulders down away from your ears.
Breath out as you lift up into an abdominal curl, while simultaneously squeezing the circle. Draw your ribcage down towards your hips and keeping that small little gap underneath your lower back. Imagine you are trying to fit into a really tight pair of pants as you curl up!
Breath in and lower your head and chest back down and release the circle slightly. Repeat this exercise for 1 minute!

3. CRISS CROSS
