Rectus Abdominus Pull Downs

You can do this on a high lat – low row machine.

Attach a bar or rope to a weight on the machine.

Kneel down and hold the bar directly behind your head.

Your spine is fully extended and you are stretching the abs in the kneeling positions.

Pull down (and forward), curling your spine with your abs. Try to get your elbows to your knees.

Repeat, breathing in and out each time.

Gradually add speed, but don’t swing your body around.

Add weight as you get stronger.

excerpt taken from, ‘How I Got My Wiggle Back’, page 163, In addition to a locked arch spring, Anthony had particular issues with the muscles supporting the spring system around the lower back and pelvis, so we worked his abdominals right from the start and I visited him on tour a few weeks after we initiated the “play” routines to provide added guidance.

This exercise really strengthens the abbs so the people who cannot hang can develop the strength to hang.
