Reclining Circle

The reclining circle is a dynamic exercise that strengthens the core and lower back. The exercise also increases hip and spinal stability.

    Sit on the floor with your knees bent to 90 degrees and your feet flat on the floor in front of you. Lean back slightly and rest your body weight on your elbows with your palms facing down.
  2. Reclining Circle
    Tighten your abs and lift your feet off the floor. Without changing the position of your knees, draw a circle with your legs in one direction. Pause, and then draw a circle with your legs in the opposite direction.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Don't sway your upper body back and forth as you draw circles with your legs.
  • Keep your core tight throughout the entire exercise.
  • Keep as little weight as possible on your elbows to make your abs work harder.
