(A) Over-Head Abdominals
Standing with your back to a band or a pully connection point grasp a handle with both hands so your palms are facing away from you. Walk forward slightly until you feel tension on the band/pully. Brace your core, set your scapula and pack your neck. Raise your arms straight overhead until they are in line with your head. Now slowly push your hips back hinging through your hips until you feel resistance on the band; DON’T GO TOO FAR FOWARD AND LOSE YOUR LOWER BACK LORDOSIS!! Remain braced and slowly return to the start position. A 6 count back to the start position is ideal for the return. You will feel a big pull on your abdominals going back so make sure you control the movement as this is where the true effect of the exercise is realized. Your goal should be 3 sets of 12-15 reps. Once you can achieve this you are ready for Single Leg Over-Head Abdominals.
