Dove's famous ab workout applies isometrics to help tone up your abs. Similar to rocking on a boat back and forth.
Hi. I'm Deb with ExerciseTV. And today, I'm going to teach you how to do a rock-a-bye which is one of my famous ab exercised I've invented. And basically, the word of the title of the exercise really will help you to think of the words. Rock-a-bye, so think of that motion as if you're at the sea or if you're in a boat and you're cradling yourself. So, just come down to the floor. Roll down slowly. Make sure that you're a little warmed up with your lower back before you start this exercise. Bring your knees into your chest. Place the hands behind your head and place the elbows into the knees and you wanna keep that connection right there throughout the entire exercise. And you just gently lift and lower, like this. Basically, it's just that. Very simple but it's very, very isolated so you feel it very quickly. Let's try to do a set of 24 together. So push, good. Just like that and you'll see my shoulders are staying off the floor. That's the key. So there's never releasing point. Perfect. Keep that breath. Good. Let's try eight more. Eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, good. Let's relax down for a second. Extend the arms straight. Reach the arms over your head. We're gonna do one more set of that. Really try your best to think about your stomach. You wanna think of closing your rib cage, pulling your belly into your back, bringing the knees back into the chest, hands behind the head. Let's try it once more. Come out as high as you can. Push the elbows into your knees and then press away. Good. Just like that and you'll notice that motion should feel like rock-a-bye. Press, press, perfect. Exhale up and up. Good. You really master this, this is an excellent exercise to throw into your ab work. Give me eight more. Seven, six, five, four, three, two and release. Good. Bring in your knees into your chest giving yourself a hug, resting your head down. Good. Slow deep breaths and then rocking up slowly, coming all the way back up. Great work. So you'll find that if you really focused on keeping the motions small and concise, you get the best results. Just always remember to breathe. Listen to your body. Take breaks if you need to and really, really focus on your abs and you'll look great. Thank you so much. I'm Deb with ExerciseTV. We hope to see you soon.
