Exercise 1669: Crab

3 mins
What You'll Need:

Muscle Focus: Abdominals.

Objective: Build abdominal strength and control.

Start Position: Sit cross legged, bring your knees to your shoulders and hold the tops of both feet with your hands. Curl into a ball, gazing into your abdominals, and pulling the abdominals to the spine.

Movement: Exhale and engage the powerhouse to roll onto your knees, keeping the spine in a C-curve, rolling forward until the top of the head comes to the Mat and the hips are directly over the knees. Inhale, maintaining the C-curve, roll back to balance on the shoulder blades, with hips over shoulders. Let go of your feet, switch the cross of the legs, and grasp back onto both feet. Exhale return to start position and repeat.

Precautions: Avoid this exercise if you have had a neck or spine injury. It is recommended that you are proficient in performing Rolling Like a Ball and Seal prior to attempting this exercise. Maintain the C-curve shape of the spine and the lift and scoop of the abdominals.
