When done effectively, Pulling the Rope builds strong abdominal muscles as well as tones the arms.
✅ Begin on the backside of the body on your mat.
✅ Keep the low back on the mat, pull the belly in tight, and reach the legs up.
✅ Tuck the chin into the chest, the head hovering off the mat.
✅ Reach the arms parallel to the legs.
✅ Inhale, reach one hand up, exhale as you pull down.
✅ Inhale, reach the other hand up, exhale as you pull done.
Keep the core activated for the entire movement to get deep into the abdominal muscles. Use the exhale to power through the movement.
