Thanks for the question and answer! I thought it meant to tighten the abs, but if so, why didn't anyone ever just say that?

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

sitting at your chair, driving in the car, standing in line.......just think of the possibilities.

I heard it described as "zipping you abs" once and always likes that description.

off to look at the video for a fresh look at things

Chris, thanks so much for that link!! In following her instructions, it occurred to me that I should be engaging my abs some even while sitting in my chair at the computer - I'm betting that doing it (I'm doing it as I speak) will not only help my posture but will strengthen me and by practicing it in my chair will help me do it BETTER while I'm exercising!!

I THOUGHT I knew what it meant before but after following her instructions I'm sure I WASN'T doing it right!! So thanks again!!

Have a SPARKLING day everyone!!

I have noticed several videos on Sparkpeople say to engage your abs. What does that mean? I did the 12 min seated core workout today, and not sure I was doing it right because of this I thought engaging abs, means to suck them in while you complete the workout. Is that correct?

Any advice would be appreciated


Thanks
Cheryl Martin.
