Build a Stronger Core
1. Tuck your tailbone
What the heck does ‘tuck your tailbone’ even mean? Imagine that you have a tail, and you want to put your tail in between your legs. 😉
2. Squeeze your glutes
You know where your butt cheeks meet your legs and make a smiley face? Ya, I thought you might. Squeeze your glutes near that smiley line, and pull them in toward the midline of your body. This should really firm your lower back and bum.
3. Spiral your thighs inward and up toward your pelvic floor
It’s helpful to use a prop here to get the feeling. Try placing a yoga block, pillow or rolled up towel in-between your legs, close to your pubic bone. Squeeze the prop tightly and lock down your pelvic floor muscles.
4. Tighten your abs
Pull your abdominals up toward your rib cage and in toward your spine. It’s important you can still breathe, so don’t hold your breath, just keep your belly firm.
Try these tips when doing any core exercise. Think bicycle crunches, regular crunches, leg lowers, bridge, plank, superman, etc.
