By doing a lot of different sports I experienced how important the body tense is. Especially in the hips- and abdominal area: When you climb on an overhanging ledge to keep your butt near the wall or when I stood for the first time on the cross-country skis this days and tried some skating moves, I needed a lot of tense to keep my centre in the right position over the skis…but it was not too bad.
To train the body tense in this area we lean on the elbows and put he arches of the feet on a bench or couch as high as our shoulders. Then lift your body until you form a straight line and hold the position as long as you can.
This is again a perfect exercise to do a battle with your friends…sometimes we need a tiny challenge.
