The abdominal brace is an important technique for building stronger lower abdominals, which in turn builds stabilizes the spine. This is useful in many activities and support a weaker back.
Visualize pulling your front hip bones together, but make sure you continue to breathe. Hold the abdominals for a count of 10. This helps avoid simply sucking in the stomach but actually works to isolate the lower abdominals. The exercise can be performed at any time, whether you’re standing at the kitchen counter washing dishes or brushing your teeth.
