The Teaser

Purpose: Strengthens the abdominals and hip flexors.

1. Lie on your back with your arms flat on the mat, palms facing down, and slightly abducted from your body. Your knees are bent and feet are flat on the mat.
2. Push your palms into the floor and lift your legs off the mat and into tabletop. This is your starting position.
3. Inhale to prepare, then exhale to sequentially peel your spine off the mat, sweeping your arms round and reaching forwards, whilst simultaneously lengthening your legs. Inhale to squeeze your thighs and remember to keep your core engaged.
4. Exhale to roll the spine back under control, bringing the arms back to the mat and bending the knees into tabletop.

Perform 3 to 5 repetitions.
