Exercise should include abdominal muscle strengthening: contracting your stomach muscles for strong “abs,” and optimal pelvic area for circulation. This is called the abdominal crunch. To accomplish this, lie down in a horizontal position, bend your knees, and place your feet flat on the floor. Roll your upper body forward, contract your stomach muscles, and release after holding for a count of 15 or 20, then let go. Repeat as many times as possible, being sure not to push hard beyond your ability. Start slowly and steadily build up. Make this a daily routine.
Lift your shoulder blades off the ground, hold the pose, contract your stomach mus cles and lower yourself slowly. Repeat this three or four times, gradually building up. Most exercises need to be done every other day for the rest of your life.
