Strengthen your tummy muscles to improve your core strength and control

Roll back with band

Benefits

This move helps you build core strength and increases muscle control, which will improve your body’s overall range of motion.

How to do it

·         Begin by sitting up tall. Bend your knees and point your toes towards the ceiling. Place a band around the bottom of your feet and grab hold of the free ands, keeping your elbows bent slightly and at your side.

·         Exhaling, squeeze your bottom and slowly roll your spine half way down to the floor.

·         Hold this position, breathe in and feel your abdominal muscle contract. Breathe out and slowly roll back up to the stating position.

·         Repeat this move up to eight times.

Chest: open your chest and maintain a wide pose through your body

Bottom: squeeze your bottom to help lower your back

Feet: keep your feet flexed and your heels on the floor throughout the move

H&F tip: Place a pillow or small cushion between your knees to target your inner thighs.

Make it harder

For more of a challenge, let go of the band as you reach the half-way point, and lower your body to the floor gently. Breathe in as you reach the floor. Exhale as you lift your body back up. Aim to maintain good form, and use the strength from your tummy muscles to lift your body up.
