From there, everybody's favorite, the hundred. So just move a little bit away from your shoulder. Rest. We're still going to keep the two springs on. OK. So this is performed on the mat and on the reformer, only we have the resistance of the strap. So we take the feet off the foot bar. We're going to start tabletop for 50, as we pulse the arms. And then actually we're going to add a challenge by sending the legs away. If you feel you're not sure about it, then just keep the legs bent. So we breathe in. As you breathe out, you push and flex up-- very strong. And now we pump it as you breathe in-- 2, 3, 4, 5 and out 2, 3, 4, 10. Keep those abs working. Out 2, 3, 4, 20 in 2, 3, 4, 5, and out 2, 3, 4, 30 in 2, 3, 4, 5, and out 2, 3, 4, 40 in 2, 3, 4, 5, and out 2, 3, 4, 50 in 2, 3, 4, 5, extend 2, 3, 4, 5, and in 2, 3, 4, 5 extend 2, 3, 4, 5. Only go as low as you can control. Your back-- if you're starting to feel it, keep the legs bent in. Reach it out. That's it. Good. Let's do one more. Try it. Just one more out, out, out, out. Bring it in. And that's it-- stay. Very controlled-- and release down. OK. Now we're going to put our feet into the straps-- bend and stretch. So to put them in. Just put both feet on the foot bar. Push away. Take the straps. That's it. Place one foot in. Now make sure you've got tension on that strap before you take the other foot off. That's it. We're going to start parallel with the knees bent. So here we're in a neutral position. Try not to let the tailbone curl off the mat. We exhale. We breathe out to press away, only as low as you can control your back. And breathe it in. That's it. And breathe out. Reach away. And control it in. It's all about control, making sure that you're working the muscles smoothly and evenly. And the breath is helping you. And the abdominals are supporting you. And reach away. That's it.
