When considering where to begin our series of videos that highlight specific areas of training, we decided there was no better place to start than the core. And rather than kick it off with a standard crunch, we decided to just kick you in the abs with a killer: The Hollow Rock.
1). Begin on your back and make sure you're not arching by pushing your belly button toward the floor. Feel that? Your abs are already engaged.
2). Clinch your glutes and keep them clenched. Are you still flat? Stay flat.
3). First, just try maintaining the correct posture by raising your arms and legs like Jimmy above. Are you still flat? If you can't maintain the posture, try bending your knees. When your core becomes strong enough to maintain that posture (work toward 30 seconds), straighten your legs. Feel that? Strive to maintain that posture. Once your core is strong enough, you're ready for Step 4. (Is your back still flat? Are you squeezing your glutes?)
4). Start hollow rocking!
Work this into your core routine and try it for 30 seconds. When you can do it for a minute, you're truly a Hollow Rock Star.
