Get the most out of our core work by adding some inner thigh work!
Engaging your inner thighs makes it easier to engage your low abs. So why not add some inner thigh work to your core work? The best way to do this is to use a little ball.
Think about how your pant seems run up the center of your inner legs and up the center of your pelvis. When using the ball, squeeze with your knees (or ankles if doing an exercise with straight legs) and imagine this squeeze energy following the seem of your pants: coming up the inside of your legs into the front of your pubic bone to engage your pelvic floor, and then coming up into your low abs between your hips to pull your low abs in toward your spine. This will also help to stabilize your hips.
Grab your 7-8in slightly squishy ball and give this a try!
