Side sit ups are hard and we often flail ourselves around in them. If this sounds like you or your clients, grab a long pole and follow Lori’s little fix towards making your side sit ups work for you rather than getting worked by them. You’ll get smoother results, more elongation and activation with the muscle memory from following the pole, ta-da!

      Hi Tracy. You’re right! He used the same leg forward on both sides. Uh oh. I didn’t catch that while filming. I like the way he did it on the first side as my default. It helps the thighs turn slightly out more easily than the way he did it on the second side. But as you can see, it is possible to do it the other way. And it’s certainly best to do it the same way on both sides! Thanks for catching that. I’ll let Ian know we screwed up. ><
      Cheers, and thanks for watching
