Kneeling Core Move: Ab-Fab-ulous!

Kymberly Williams-Evans, MA and Alexandra Williams, MA

Are you ready for another core move that will strengthen your abs and is a bit of a challenge?

Kneeling Core Move - Lean Waaaaay Back

The kneeling core move has you on your knees, but not begging for forgiveness! Everywhere a belt would touch is where you’ll have to contract. When you do this move correctly, you will feel your abs engaging and working for sure. Done right, your glutes stay pushed forward and contracted throughout.

 

Our short video shows both the right and wrong way to get the most from the Kneeling Core Move.

The tricky thing about this core exercise is that it’s easy to do wrong. So we recommend using a mirror the first few times you try it. You will think you are hinging at the floor, yet may be be actually hinging along the spine (bending at waist or hips, tipping at shoulders).

If you feel off-balance, you’re probably doing it right. If your behind sticks out, you are doing it wrong and will get zero abs benefit. You will improve your hula hooping though! If the Kneeling Core Move seems easy,  check your form or have someone check it for you. (After you both watch the video of course).
