  • Keep your spine as neutral as you can comfortably manage- avoid arching the spine or forcing your back to flatten out. 
  • Use the abdominal muscles to push your breath out- focus on making that connection.
  • Try to keep the belly stable- not rocking or shifting from side to side or rolling to the left or right.
  • Work up to 10 repetitions
  • Make small adjustments as you get stronger- it’s an easy way to stay challenged and engaged, and will certainly help to gain strength in the gluteal muscles.
