Draw in your mid-section

Practice slightly bracing your mid-section by contracting your abs at least 20% of your max contraction, especially when standing. This move helps ensure your core and back remain strong and protected. This feels like you’re slightly flexing the muscles in the mid-section to pull your belly-button towards the spine.

This exercise engages the transverse abdominus muscle. This deep muscle layer wraps the mid-section like a safety belt, supporting the core, spine, and posture. This movement can be practiced anytime by actively drawing in and holding a contraction for at-least 10-15 seconds at a time.
