Shaking Abs!!

This is an Abs pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 10875)

Start off in a sitted position, toes can be up or feet flat on the floor, whatever is comfortable for your participants. Legs should be hip distance apart. Back is straight. Your hands are placed behind your butts, fingers facing towards your parts, shoulder width apart. Start of by inhaling, as you exhale, draw your belly button towards your spine and hold contracted throughout, but breathe normally. Gently start to low towards floor, taking the participants down all the way to the mat, keeping contracted, lift elbows away from the mat up to an inch of the floor and hold for as long as possible. Concentrate on pulling the abs in tight to flatten the stomach working on the deep abdominals, elbows pointing to the back of the room. After a short while, the abs will fatigue and begin to shake. Assess your own participants on how long you want them to hold and then release back to a sitted position.

I find this exercise is best followed after you have finished all your other ab exercises and the music is slower, say for your stretch at the end. Good luck, its a hard one.
