I was driving around last week when I heard someone talking about this story so I looked it up as soon as I got home.
If you do yoga or pilates or have been trying to get the core you’ve always dreamed of, you’ll definitely want to watch the video below. If you’ve ever heard an instructor say, ‘hold your core’ and you had no idea what they were talking about, check out pilates instructor Karlie Andrews from Brisbane, Australia as she demonstrates how to ‘turn on’ your abs, just by BREATHING.
I find I get so much more out of my ab workouts when I’m really focusing on, and nailing technique. Lately I’ve been checking back in with some super basic engagement and activation exercises like this one. You can do it lying down, kneeling (like me) or standing. ▪️breathe in and relax your tummy ▪️breathe out and pull your belly to your spine, melt your ribs in, and lift up your pelvic floor like your stopping yourself doing a wee 🙈.
