So let's get right into it. The first exercise is drum. Roll mountain climbers. Yeah baby this one's oldie but a good you know if you've never done mountain climbers you don't know what you're missing so you start off in a plane position shoulder stacked over hands your ads tight but down a once you're set you're in that position ready to go. Bring your knees toward your chess. One at a time and then back to the starting position back to that plank position you wanna get a nice controlled movement you know one leg tie from the starting plank position to the ending knee in your chest position you know.

But that's what i do actually gives me a little more support. And and i personally found that i can leverage that support and get really tight. Isolated moves to really work the muscles in that area. You know super simple exercise but super duper results for
