Journey to Tummy Strong

It starts from the beginning, its a story of commitment but nothing crazy. Its determination, focus and a gentle progression to get where you want with patience. But what cant be emphasised enough is commitment, its not maximal effort all the time, its just showing up to apply the rules you are taught.

‘Great stability comes from a really strong pelvis, that is balanced and paired through all muscle groups, here below I outline four key movement paths that kick start this journey that are a staple to the routine of strength & conditioning for this area’

For women whom have been out of exercise for a while or are returning from child birth, it is recommended that any double leg exercise lever on the abdominal region is refrained from until the gentle abdominal single leg lever exercises can be completed with ease. Always ensure before the execution of any exercise that the pelvic belt is drawn in and up and the importance of the gentle breathe on each movement is thought of. Any straining or holding of breath can have counter effect. If you find any exercise hard, down scale it and feel the muscles you are working with slow and gentle movements. The importance here with any prescriptive exercise is that you always feel the movement of the muscle in its plane, that its gentle and controlled whilst in breathe.
