Lie on the floor with arms stretched overhead and legs very slightly bent at the knee. Using a slow and controlled motion, bring the arms and legs together over the waist, so that only the lower back and butt are touching the floor. Hold for a couple seconds and roll back down to starting position. NOTE: Pay attention to the spine rolling down from the tail bone to the neck-one vertebrae at a time as the legs lower simultaneously.
Beginning on the stomach, facing down to the floor with palms resting on the floor as if about to do a push-up. Then push up onto the toes with forearms on the floor. Keep the back flat and straight throughout the exercise.. Keep everything from the shoulders down flat and aligned. Hold the abs in without holding the breath and stay in this position for 20-60 seconds, or longer! Slowly lower to starting position.
Simply lie flat on the floor and put hands beside head. Bring knees up to about 45 degree angle. Slowly move the legs like you are pedaling a bike, and touch opposite elbow to knee. Don’t forget to breathe.
