Place the platform extender where, when you hold onto the shoulder rest, your spine is in a nice, neutral position. If you're too close, you'll feel bunched up. This is a great exercise for torso stability, and we're going to focus on the lats. So from here, breathe in. Long neck. Exhale. Just pull the carriage towards you. If you find that the headrest is hitting, make sure you have it up, then you'll get more range. And exhale. Pull it right in. Very nice. And pull it in. He makes it look so easy, and so do you, Natalia. That's it. And she still smiling. Pull it in. We're going to do four more. And exhale. Pull it in. That's beautiful. Pull it in. Two more, really focusing on the lats. And this is a lot more difficult than it looks, and you're probably feeling this if you're trying now. Now let's do some spinal flexion. We're really going to engage the abdominals to flex your spine. Breathe in. Now flex. Think of sending the tailbone down to the floor. Pull it in. Inhale and release. And exhale, flex and release. Beautiful. Exhale, three. Really working the abdominals. And pull it in, four. Release and exhale, five. Perfect. Be careful that you don't start to sit back as you pull in. Use your abdominals, not the weight, to pull that carriage in. Two more. Pull up. One more. Pull up. Now in case you haven't felt your abdominals enough, let's get those obliques again. Let's put both hands on the one shoulder rest. From here, because we're rotated, we're going to pull in. That's going to activate the obliques. Exhale and release. And those are the muscles that really give you the power as we talked about earlier in rotation. And pull deep into the core.
