Too often people (girls especially) are bringing their belly in for image. This activates the Transverse Abdominis muscles but does little to support the back and provides insufficient stability. If anything, the contraction of the abdominal muscles should protrude the abdominal muscles out (not just to the front but to the sides). This type of abdominal bracing has been shown to be a better strategy than hollowing for maintaining good support (Prof. Stuart McGill). The video demonstrates good form but the cues for a beginning participant might be a little better. Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
