Abdominal exercises need to be done mindfully in order to get their benefits.

I wrote about that in my last post.

The Pilates Roll Up

works the entire rectus abdominis very intensely, and it stretches your spine. It’s a great mind-body abdominal exercise because you really need to think about how you’re moving your body and your vertebrae.

The great thing about this abdominal exercise is

you don’t need to do hundreds of repetitions. Four to eight repetitions of your most difficult level is enough.

If it’s a little different from what you’ve done in the past, that’s why.

If you’ve worked with me before

you’ve done this exercise! This video will remind you of some of the small details.

We’re working on abdominal exercises

in Mind Body Blast this week. We’re working up to doing abdominal exercises at least 4 times per week to have an optimally strong and fit midsection.
