Pull this straight legs back to the center. Straight eggs and then brain the knees and we go over to the side. Inhale, Xcel reaching the legs up. I pull up those quadriceps, draw the legs back to the center and being the nice two more. And inhale and press away. Excel. Create your own resistance the whole time you are in tune with your body.

Keep moving. She's waiting for my cue. You're a good student and bend your knees one whole and inhale over and extend the legs. Draw deep into the abdominals. Pull the legs back to the center, bend your knees and replaced one leg at a time on the floor. From here we're going to go into the money roll-up. So I want you guys to slide your legs away. We're going to do the money.

Roy Labs with straight legs today. Taking a debrief on the XL, draw the chin to the chase and just bring that thoracic spine up off the floor. So this is your sit up. This is your starting position. Take a breath. Inhale on the XL, deepen the flection without the power shifting. So you want to press the bar up and we inhale, come back to this gaps and we excel. Drawer the abdominals and left up and inhaled back to the gaps.

And we excel. Don't be shy to leave me an email. Formal and excel drawing in, drawing and lower down and through more. Make sure the nick doesn't take strain here and lower down. Good work. You guys do more XL drawer, deep, deep, deep. And inhale and exhale. So my train the nic flection here for me, cal lower down.

We're going to do one more and exhausted. It's almost like you're resisting the ball using the abdominals for the resistance. Lower down to your scabs. Then lower your head all the way down. I want you to change your hand grip so that you're in the underhand grip. We're gonna move into the obliques this time. So both hands are underneath.

Make sure your hands are in line with your shoulders, not wide. Right in line with your shoulders. We're gonna bend your right knee up off the floor into your tabletop position. Bring your right hand behind your head. Inhale for me and on the XL.

Move your body into forward flection. So again, trying to chase chase two thighs. Again, this is your set up, so we're going to move from here into rotation, focusing on the oblique muscles. We inhaled for the prep, rotate to the right side and Xcel up, up, up. Stay on the diagonal. As you lower it to the scaps and we go Xcel Xcel. And inhale, making sure that the shoulder blade is not left up. So you've got shoulder stability, but the obliques are actually doing the work.

Three more. And Xcel reach, reach, reach and inhale done. Another common fault that we see here is that we been the arm and then it becomes a arm exercise. Make sure that elbow stays striped. Last one, cal and excel up, up, up, up. Come down to the center. Lower your hair down.

Bring your body to center, place your foot down, slide your leg away and lower the head down. Great. From here you guys are going to let go of the ball. We're going to do a footwork series in a standing position.

So let's just do a rollout. So we have a nice transition of movement even if the arms are just in 90 degrees. Inhale, lift the arms, not the Chin and in XL roll up and we love transition of movements and flow. You guys can stand up, face the push through bar, make sure you standing arm length away even it feels, if it feels you're a little bit further than closer to the bar. And we're going to start with our classical squat, but with up velocities, principles. So on the inhale we're going to Bain, the knees almost pulling on the bar sitting down so that your spine is alone, aligned on the exhale. Use the hip extensors and then brace up and we go again in hell two flakes.

Making sure the pelvis as well as the hate of fitting on the roller, bringing your hands into the strips and a little bit different than our traditional 90 degrees. The arms will be at an angle only because of the resistance of the spring. We don't want to take too much tension into the neck on the in-breath you guys, we're going to keep the hay down on the XL.

Just extend your arms down to hip height so that upper arm is in line with your hip joint in hell. Resist this spring as the arms lift back up. We're going to do two more here and Xcel.

And good, right? Making sure your straps are in the right position. Yes. Right? I want you to bring your hands over your head just to block yourself. I'm gonna move these out of the way.

Okay, great. Stability. So again, just take a moment. Find your center, bring the body and mind together. You're on an unstable surface. Your legs are in unstable position. So really bring the body and mind together to make sure you, this exercise is done in a safe manner. The ankles are Dorsey flakes, Dorsey flakes, Dorsey flakes for their extension.

From here we're going to sit up the push through ball once spring, bottom loaded for spinal articulation, so I have to do this again and he goes, it's a safety thing. One, I know we don't teach on balance body back home, so you all forgiven. So always safety chain on first, whoops. So and then we add the spring. There we go. And so we just learn from each other. Okay you guys, we're going to go into a spinal articulation.

You're going to align a supine position, so just make sure the arms are super straight over their head so that we can distribute the weight evenly between the head and the shoulders. Seeing that we are working on such a vulnerable area around the c spine, we're going to take a count to three in hell, excel cal, one, two, three plus your toes on the bar, making sure the client has got the toes nice and secure on the body.
