Get the most out of your ROCKOUT WORKOUT with these #TechniqueTips. First up, Kit position.
1. In Kit Position, first sit as tall as you can. Lift your chest slightly and pull your shoulder blades back.
2. Then, exhale as you contract your core and lengthen your torso back away from your knees. Your abdominals should feel as if they are flattening towards your spine while flaring out to the sides. TIP: hold on to both sides of your waist and exhale as you press your abdominals into your hands, feeling your stomach flatten. You can also try simulating a cough to help brace your core.
3. Finally, imagine that a magnet is gently keeping your knees together. Remember to keep your spine lengthened, your shoulders relaxed and your core braced. Don’t forget to breathe!
Too much, too soon? Ease yourself into the intensity of Kit position gently over time. You don't need to lean back right away; sitting up straight with your core braced is a great option to start with. You can also try sitting upright with your legs crossed.
