Most people do not get the full effect of the bicycle because we just want to get it over with, right? Well in order to really do it correctly (this goes for all and on your back)…
1⃣lay flat on you back and tilt your pubic bone forward just a bit so your lower back is in a straight line and pressed against the floor.
2⃣Pull up through your stomach and relax your shoulders. You core/transverse abdominals are now engaged. 3⃣Lift your head up off the ground and your shoulders will follow. KEEP THE LOWER HALF ENGAGED AND IN POSITION.
4⃣Lift up your legs and keep them straight out. Not to high not to low.
5⃣When you turn from side to side there SHOULD NOT BE ROCKING. You DO NOT need to actually touch your knee to elbow. Just point the shoulder toward the knee keeping the elbows in a straight line with your head (not collapsing in).
The movement can be slow if needed but try it this way and you will be AMAZED at how much harder and effective they are. I was. LOL.
Do as many as you can in 1 minute. Repeat 3xs
