Heel Taps

This is a great abdominal exercise for beginners.  It is also a great way to strengthen the lower back. Heel Taps have been around forever. They are a wonderful way to acquire pelvis awareness.

1. Your lower back must remain on the ground. This is not an option. None of that, Oh I’ll just put my hand here. This is a terrible modification. If you need a hand behind your back, you are executing an exercise that your core is not ready for. But, worry not, you will get there…. but by doing exercises that accurately reflect your fitness level.

2. With a 90 degree bend in the knee, see if you can lower one of your heels a little bit. Moving from the hip. NEVER CHANGING THE BEND OF THE KNEE.

3. You may not be able to reach the floor with that moving leg. That is not the goal. The goal is to be able to move one of your legs at a time stabilizing and maintaining contact with your pelvis on the ground.

It’s not supposed to be easy. Smile!
