Improve Your Core, Improve Your Performance
Do you feel like you aren't able to generate enough explosive power or strength as you used to? The first place where you should look is your core!
RevInMo emphasizes the core through Abdominal Hollowing. To simulate this, find a spot right between your pubic bone and belly button and imagine drawing that spot in and up towards your spine. That is how we ought to be engaging our core. As a result, we are able to combine the other Essentials of posture such as Lift in the Chest and Relaxing the Low Back for fluid and effective movement patterns.
Here are a couple exercises to reinforce Abdominal Hollowing!
Roll out into a dive position, knees and elbow stay straight
Pull yourself forward until your shoulders are stacked above your hands
Press your shins into the ball, hollow your abs, and lift your sacrum to the ceiling
Roll back into the beginning extended position
Knees Side to Side
Roll out over the ball, hands shoulder width apart
With your knees and feet together, bring your knees to your chest
Drop your head to the floor, elbows stay straight, and the sacrum is directed towards the ceiling
Move your knees to one side of the ball, dropping the opposite hip onto the ball
Hollow your abs to bring your sacrum back up to the ceiling, and then repeat on the other side (alternating back and forth)
Sit on top of the ball, walk forward rolling down on the ball until you are in a lying position
Feet hip width distance apart, toes pointed forward, knees at 90 degrees
The top of your glutes are in contact with the ball, head is relaxed on the ball with the chin directed towards the ceiling, and reach your tailbone to your knees by drawing in your abs to the front of the spine
Bells will start at your ears, pointing your elbows to the ceiling
Grip the bells lightly, and your arms from the elbow to the hands are relaxed
Initiate the movement by lowering the bells to the floor by with the muscles under your shoulder blades, and then bringing them back up to your ears
