And then put the bar down. We do tree. So here important, that thing is the length through your legs. And so here are more lengthen your leg lifted the backoff so you don't want to be collapsed, right? So here then if you can go up higher, even even up and go higher. So you walk up to your ankle, bend over from your abdominal, bring your leg with you, your body here. Now here it's different. So you want to keep lift again and back. You walk down the leg, roar down through your spine right here, and then come back up XL and you're gonna lift your back a little bit. You don't have the all the way flat by little bit, okay.

But you don't want to hang ls as you want to be lifted a little bit. And again, bend over that. Make sure you want to be even walk down the leg here, walk up the leg, pull yourself up literally here. One more time, all the way. So gradually you want to be really, really get the stretch, right? So you know, get into the more, into the pose.

And that let's you to add to the side one. So here to the open. You can go to your parents right to this side and then come back. Switch your foot here, flex your foot and arms. Reach it to the back. So here Paul, and twist your body. It's about more twist. It's not this way. You are. So I'm here. Your body goes a twist. Bend your knee. Always lift your power, Hassan and over. So you don't want to collapse.

So key lift is bend over and change other signers. So here, one, two, three. If you can go up higher a little by little and walk up again, lift your power. So always bend over backwards. Keep the stretchy here to square the hips. Roll down, Rola. So lift your back again, roll down, Rola, and then lift your a little more. Last one back. So get little by little, get into d or more. Stretched. Sigh, open, stretch, stretch and come back up.

Flex your foot. Put always a little sad. As you know, we don't want to be like this. You want to be here opened. So trying to really open to the side here instead of this, this right. So here and then you bend over, lift your powerhouse, bend over, stretch, and you get off. Well, I'm gonna add, do the other side. Sit Up here. So let's go here. This a foot is a toe is a Doussou gravity or strap. You want to sit in the one button? You don't want to be too comfy.

So I'm by body's lean this way already. So hands it behind your net. Maybe a little range of motion. But I want to keep the flat here instead of this. Okay, so here, two dynamic rhythm, four and five. And then you go arms along, reach down deeper. And then all the way, okay, reach it down and come up.

Now you're going to go side stretch here. Size deeper, deeper. And then you just come up right away. And then this side of stretch. Okay, so other side. So I'm changing my foot. I'm sitting with the one bat, right? This one is up in the air here. So one, two, three, four and five. And then I'm going to go deeper down this.

This is more challenge. You don't have to and go down and come up and then you can go down all the way and stretch more, deeper, deeper all the way. And they use us comma, always live to SRE and that you don't want to hang down the knee either. Keep it up over. Okay. I want to make sure you want to bend the knee because this is a blocking the movement. So you can drop your knees, open up the space, you can go here. Okay.

And the box goes aback. Here we go. And then this goes down and we do long stretch. So here, here, so because I'm bare feet, so I don't really have to use a [inaudible] pad. So here, hand, foot shorter is over. Your hands right away. So here and then you push you right away. Pole push may show. Don't want to drop your hands or keep though your neck SRE all the way.

Come in, knees slightly open and down. Here's again to show the loss so you can get into the motion right away. Inner Push. Exa come up higher, higher, higher in her. Again, it's about going up, up, up last one, up, up, up, all the way to your fingertips. So even more here and there with ups raises their hands on both knees a little bit, slightly forward. Your fit is a Mesa space and from your shoulder blocks and they live to the hills, uh, up here. So you get into the pose, lower your hips, and then come in more rhythm and rhythm right here. And then you go, here's the downpour, the elephant.

There is many a version of this. This is a more stretching the hemstry. When you go more and more forward, it's challenging to your powerhouse, to the or more abdominal. So upper abdominal. So if you have a stiff lace, maybe I will do this way, but obviously you don't want to hang down. You want to be lifted. Okay, so I'm going to go this way and press out and coming and press out and coming in. Press on and come back. Press on and come all the way back again. Okay, that's good. Now we're going to do, I'm going to do the stomach massage.

I'm doing the intermediate, but I can make a little bit harder. I a two springs and I'm going to stay right here. Now using the parents sitting in the back. If you have a good hip flex, uh, fluxion you shouldn't try. If you don't have it, use the pad and the seat. Trying to be farther back on my case. I have a good flection here, my hips, so I can challenge myself more. So I'm going this push a little bit, my table on to the edge of the, uh, uh, this, uh, character. So here, here, so I start right here.

So we're down in our pain. Two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. I'm going to just say, and then hands back. So because it's too far, because I'm sitting so close to here, I'm gonna, I'm gonna put my hands on here. So lift your powerhouse. Angle two in three. It's more in four. I move the carriage in now by springs in last one, and [inaudible] right away. Exhale, more. Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale. Last one. And all the way in.

Now I do twist and [inaudible] tourists. So more here, more here, here, and then step off. Okay, a semicircle. Next exercise there. So semi circle is a great exercise for everyone. It's a harder to get into the pose about your sins.

Do you understand this exercise? You get the really good benefits. So it's all about opening the hips, your back. So I start to hear always, I look at my feet, get into the center position, and then my body is already here. I don't see it right here. So here, lie on your bare hands on you come down, lift your bottom. You have to lift your Jabara move. Your shoulders are down like this.

If you have clothings on, on your shoulder, you can just slide it down. Otherwise you move with walk with your shoulders. So you get into the post, open up. The here is a very important too. So here as a much as you can use Rach, you wrote down, so articulate, fine, make sure always open up here is important to here. So hip down. As much as you can push it away. You don't have to stretch your knee, you keep the bend any and then call your table under.

Don't move the carriage at the time. So lift and then come in control and again, roll down owl [inaudible] and colander up, controlling hormones, time, Korea Taber up and then you come in reverse and et cetera. So I get the really, really stretch and come back in and the all the way up here, so really stretchy here. Again, come in and up. One more time down in [inaudible] and then you all the way up. Hold your balance here so you can grab Yanko Ziva, trying to put the heels down if you can. Here's the down, even your stretch even more.

So according to table under here's a down you stretch. So we've got to really stretch here. I'm sorry, TBA put herself there. Okay. And then last you do the leg circles. So I grab everything at once and just like this and then you add the strap are the ones I choose. [inaudible] my client to do this too.

So everyone has to do like this way and go here. And just the goal here on your bay. I look a made sure this a metal part that goes outside here, ebook, get into the fit into those reps is a part of exercise. I know some people pull like this. I read the reach of my bottom to fit into those rafts. So, so you want to understand how to use your powerhouse in your bar to able to lift. Okay, so here, get into the pose has to be right position and stretch it out.

And then, so this is, I think of the more your spine, push the carriage out this way instead of laser out. So I'm pulling the carriage back in with the my back, push the carriage out, out, out, pull the carriage back in, in, in pushing the carriage out, out out some more, I think of a here then legs and come in, in, in the push, the carries out, holding the carriage here and circle. So more manage and the movement and more smooth. Yeah. So here.

And the reverse instead of a too wide is a, you're opening year, you're stretching the hips by instead of they're more focused on smooth movement, controlling the movement and Beth. So here, take that out, drop, step off and you just need structures. So here, hands here, food the other hand. So I get into the pose right away in one motion and you go out any work on the rhythm in n in, in and the arch right away. Strong arms and in and go in two, three, four in, in ink and the in. So it's important to get into the dispose and not all the way up here. So real horrid and gently Duh.

And we're going to do runny. So I got called back to forest springs again, getting to the right away to Patricia, push it away, run [inaudible] holding onto the par has really funny. Now the way up, keep the Hughes of, as you call me, I see a lot of people dropping the hills. I keep the heels off. So keve lift, lift, lift, lift, lift. Now here, pelvic lift. So Fiera here, lift your bottom about this much or one fist here. Suppressor bombing your botox so you don't want to rest is about forming your buttocks and allow last one as your XL.

Hold on. [inaudible] tight, not sloppy. So holding, hold the carriage in. Don't move the carriage as you roll down. So we have the key. Work your ball all the way down. Okay now let's see. Do you side is split. So side display, I put the pad on here. So this boy is holding the pad and I'm just going to get into the post. So send a, Oh I use the one spring and this foot first.

Always a stabilized first you put your foot and then trying to now move the carriage and she me so you don't move the carriage parallel feet. Press the little saddle so you don't jam your knee. So will be out to the tall and what you are engaging the eyes. So here are so Pressana hold the three counts, come in and then hold the three counts. And again three recount in whole the three counts and one more time.

Inhale, hold it. And then come back in. Hold it now. Don't move. The carriage work on the both lays, of course, include a powerhouse. So don't move the carriage. Stand to the center. You just the turn around. So here, don't move. The cares. I know many people go like this. Try to now move the carriage all the way out. If you can, and out and hold three counts and come back again. Hold the three counts and again, and then grow tall one more time.

And then come begin. Hold the three counts. She mean. So try to now move the clarity that's part of the workout. And I will step up to the side to protect the knees.

I really enjoyed this workout but found that it moved just a bit too fast. I feel great but felt rushed through parts of it. Just slow the moves down a bit and I think people could be a bit more precise on moves rather than trying to keep up. Like I said, I feel great and overall enjoyed it! Thank you!

Thank you Junghee. I really loved feeling that the legs in straps series comes from moving the carriage with your head and tailbone. It really changed the feel of the exercise for me, connecting me much better to my powerhouse.
