From the Elevators position, place one hand under your ribs and one below your navel (shown). Inhale, expanding your belly out to the first floor, then exhale to bring the transverse to the third floor (about halfway between first and sixth), keeping your shoulders still (this is the starting position). Count out loud as you bring the transverse back to the fifth floor. Squeeze and hold there, bringing your ribs together. (This is 1 repetition.) Bring the transverse back to the third floor and repeat, counting your reps out loud. Work up to 100 reps 3-5 times per day. Strengthens abs.
