Transverse Killer

This is an Abs pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 5316)

1) Lie on your back, bring your knees in 90 degrees, shins towards ceiling.

2) Place arms straight overhead, resting on the floor.

3) Flatten back to floor firmly, don't allow it to rise up!!!

4) In slow motion extend left leg toward floor, straightening it while at the same time bringing your left arm so that it follows the left leg.

5) When both arm & leg are extended fully, toes & fingers close to the floor as possible (back still flat) hold position, breathing for 20 seconds

6) Then change sides very slowly.

When this exercise is done slowly you will find that in order to keep the back flat to the floor, the transverse abdominals must work very hard. Do as many as you can, but do them very slow and keep breathing. I got this and torture & torture #2 from the "Matthews method for narrowing the waistline". Excellent web site for ab exercises.
