Slow, burning, ab work

This is an Abs pattern from (pattern 15281)

Begin sitting with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Have students hold on behind thighs and lean back until elbows are almost straight. Abs should be contracted and it takes some work to hold the position.

Important cues are to remind them not to hold their breath, to keep the navel to the spine, and to really twist as far as they can to engage the obliques.

Sometimes I challenge them not to lower down quicker than I do. This isometric holding really burns and feels great!
