Read the full transcript »
This is the Full Body Roll Up. It incorporates the entire core body. It's one of my most favorite exercises. So you are going to lay all the way down to the floor, lengthen your body. Imagine that there is a piece of velcro down the middle of your mat. You are just going to lay your spine all the way down, arms come up overhead. You are going to inhale your arms to the sky and exhale and roll up. Take about four counts to come all the way up, keep your feet on the floor, scoop out your abs and roll all the way forward, reaching your hands towards your toes, drop your head to your knees. Now start to go back, so you are going to inhale and exhale here and just slowly go about half as fast as you did on the way up, and just slowly lower down each vertebra one at a time as sequentially and gracefully control it as you place it down to the mat, very nice. Now here is the tip for you, when you are doing a full body roll up, try not to lift your feet up of the floor, using your hips to assist you. Try to make your all work from the core body and the back. Let's do another one. Inhale up and exhale, roll up and about four counts, and count in your head, and then rollback about half as slow. So here you go, or just say half as fast to make it slower. All the way down, one vertebra at a time as you sequentially lengthen your body to the mat. Inhale up, counting three, four, slow it down, all the way down. Just breathe freely here, keep your feet on the floor, scoop all your abs, lengthen your spine. Great job, this is one of those exercises that I would sneak in every single day.
