Long Stretch-Front on the Reformer
Footbar is up and locked.
Springs are on 2Red, 1Red1Blue,
1 Red1Yellow, 1 Red or 1 Blue
Your feet are either; heels against the shoulder blocks (as pictured) or legs together with balls of the feet on the headrest. Hands are on the footbar, shoulder width apart. Your knees are lifted, starting in a plank position with your shoulders above or just past the footbar. Keep your naval drawn in towards your spine throughout move.
Keep energy reaching out of the crown of your head and out through your legs into your heels, during the entire exercise.
On an inhale press the carriage back. As you move back don't let your shoulders or shoulder blades rise up toward your ears. On the exhale use your abdominals to draw the carriage back in to the stopper. Repeat 3-8x's
