Lying on your back
- Lift your head. First lift withoutthe use of your hands, then using your left hand, then with your right hand.
- Place both hands behind the head and lift your head. Then lift your legs. Does it lift the head more or less?
- Put your hands on either side of your body. Bend your knees and lift your legs.

- “We have a nervous system that learns with the speed of lightning…once [you] give your sensory motor the understanding and feeling and paying attention how you do it and the amount of lifting is increased ten fold.”
