Hi, my name is Dana Santee. And today we are going to do a mat, um, one in hopes that we work on getting used to using the backs of our legs and lengthening the hip flexors and utilizing the inner thighs a bit more. So go ahead and lie down.
Now if the pinky toe is down a little bit, let's kind of make it a little bit more, even with the big toe. It doesn't have to be exact, but not so, um, yes, not so turned like that. From here, reach your fingertips down. Bring Your Chin up a little higher. That's it. Pull those abs away. And I want you to try to reach through your heels and pump and breathe.
Inhale, exhale two. And exhale. Now keep it going. As I talk, I want you to keep reaching through the heels. Pull those abs back, okay. And see if naturally, if you feel like you're gonna use your quads, don't do it. But see if you can get your legs to lift, okay? Without using your quads.
If you need to use something, gets those inner thighs lengthen out your low back. Keep reaching those heels very far forward and inhale and exhale, and then lower the legs down. Reach the arms back behind you. Now from here, I want you to push through your heels. Arms come up, bring your chin into your chest. Roll Up. Now pull those abs way far back as you come forward.
