The Clock

This is an Abs pattern from (pattern 2333)

Abs can be done either lying on top of bench or on a mat

Taking 8 full counts, lift the upper torso around slowly like a clock. Be sure to hit 9 oclock, 12 oclock, 3 oclock and 6 oclock. Do this clockwise for several sets, then reverse and go counter clockwise. Do not let them release after each set around the clock. Always keep the shoulders up off the mat or step.

Be sure to take a full 8 counts and make sure they are really hitting the 9 oclock and the 3 oclock as they will really target the obliques here.

Cuing should be "keep your neck realxed", "press your lower back down into the step or mat", "chin lifted, and don't pull the elbows in toward your face".
