Chiropractor Recommended Exercise – Abdominals


Lie on your back, knees up – or one knee up and one leg straight.  Put your hands under the small of your back.  Come up into a half sit-up.  You should feel the strain in your tummy- not in the neck or the low back!  Looking at the ceiling will help isolate the abdominal muscles.  Here’s the hard part.  Try to keep the ‘hollow’ of the small of your back from pressing against your hands as you come up.  Slowly!
