Back Exercises: Abdominal Lift Brace with Marching
The abdominal lift brace with marching strengthens your lower abdominal muscles, helping you keep your pelvis and back stable:
Lie on the floor with both knees bent. Put your feet flat on the floor and your arms by your sides. Tighten your abdominal muscles. Be sure to continue to breathe.
Lift one bent knee about 12 to 18 inches from your buttocks, then return it to the floor and lift the other about 12 to 18 inches from your buttocks. Keep your abdominal muscles tight and continue to breathe. These motions should be slow and controlled without your pelvis rocking side to side.
Repeat 10 times.
