Back to basics
These are some of my favourite APPI foundational exercises. These scissor variations are amazing for maintaining control through the lower spine and pelvis, as well as strengthening the lower abdominals.
Make sure you:
- maintain neutral spine position
- avoid outer core doming
- avoid rib cage flaring
These exercises help to build such a good foundation to build on outer core strengthening.
