    Eric you’re so cheesy! “to get the ball rolling your can start with some bridging”…ball rolling….stability ball rollouts…come on. I feel like these monday minute videos are making you soft.

    Hi Eric: In another post you reference the need to start this movement by tightening the glutes and pressing the hips forward, but the model in this video isn’t doing that at all. What’s the best way to proceed here? Thanks in advance. Simon

    Good find. I will sometimes let those with less anterior core strength initiate it further up until they’re comfortable really working with the hips from the start. As long as the glutes are activated and they are bracing the core tightly, they’ll get the benefit.

    Another thing worth noting is that females have bigger anterior pelvic tilt than males (on average), so some females might look like they’re in a bit more hip flexion when they are, in reality, in their “neutral” position.
