I love this workout but I'm clearly not doing it right because it hurts my tailbone sooo bad. Like the skin started bleeding a bit. What am I doing wrong??
Alyssa Wishon (1 month ago)

babyhols666 (1 month ago)
ive been doing this for like a week now n idk if im doing it right i wish i had full size mirror down to the floor to see my form or her next to me cus im 99% sure its wrong
babyhols666 (1 month ago)
how is she not moving her legs in the first few moves when they’re straight as she goes up n down i cant keep mine in place
Emma Chapman-Banks (1 month ago)
if anyone is wondering, this ab workout really helps and is effective 😊 i really like how it builds lean core muscle, rather than abs which are bulking/protruding out of your stomach, like the ones some body builders have. this is also great because when you start to pick up the speed or do little pulses it becomes harder to do it well without letting your whole body move. i do this twice a day (morning and night) and i see quite a bit of improvement
Andrea mar (16 days ago)
Emma Chapman-Banks hi! do you know if this helps you to lose love handles?

Vahinemoea Pito (3 months ago)
killing me softly😲
Sheesha Ma (3 months ago)
I ask myself if my stomach will look more fat after doing this cause this will probably build muscles and push the fat even forward so my stomach looks fatter. Or am I wrong ? It would be nice if someone can make this clear
Yette Strauss Suhr (2 months ago)
No, building muscle helps your body burn morrreee fat
Alicia Barlow (4 months ago)
What if you did this while holding a weight ball?
m ha (4 months ago)
hi to all of you starting this as novice, or not much trained human. Compromise all effort and start just with half time to all exercises, do this for 2 weeks, than load minutes consistently, just to let your breath, muscles, tendons etc. get used to it. and improve step by step.. she is pro, trained since 9yrs old , bear that in mind, her physique is different to your body compsition. enjoy
Alex Wilde (4 months ago)
Brutal , but love the way she gets straight to it and cuts out all that talky introduction chit chat.
Alexandra Burrowes (4 months ago)
Does anybody have any tips for how not to shift the effort to your legs on the pulses? My body always seems to sort of offload the work to my upper thighs (even when I really concentrating on pulling in) so my abs aren't really getting the exertion they should be :/
winter-star (4 months ago)
My tailbone hurts while doing this. But it is just 7 min so I'll try to push through

Maddie R (5 months ago)
Wow this is so much harder than it looks! I thought I had a pretty strong core, but I could barely keep my feet from lifting off the ground during this.
Fay Li (5 months ago)

Sophia Xiao (6 months ago)
this one hurts my back...
Soo Yan Ng (7 months ago)
My tailbone hurts when I do this unless I fold my mat over for more cushion. My bones do protrude quite a bit, but could it be that I’m doing something wrong? Am I leaning back too much/ not sitting correctly? I’m definitely pulling my stomach in as hard as I can, though. Any reply would be greatly appreciated!!
Sam Swanson (4 months ago)
Soo Yan Honestly put a pillow under you.
