TURTLE ROCKERS

WHY?

This is a fun yet deceiving anti-extension exercise meaning it teaches you not to arch your back and truly connect all your "bracing" muscles.  Check out how to do this exercise before you try it out in class!

HOW TO: ​

  • Lie on your back.

  • Bring your legs up above your hips, bending at the knees. 

  • Press your elbows into the thighs up by your kneecap.  While having your knees/thighs press back into your elbows.  Kind of like they are fighting one another.

  • Think about keeping your rib cage and pelvis connected and press your back into the ground.

  • Keeping that connected feeling, rock back and forth for the given amount of time or reps.
