2. Pillow Squeeze

Pillow squeeze

Lie in the neutral position with your knees bent up, and place a pillow between your knees. Remember to keep your imaginary cup of tea balanced on your tummy. Breathe in, then, as you breathe out, draw up your tummy and squeeze the pillow with your thighs without tilting your pelvis, before returning to the neutral position. Make sure when you squeeze that you are just engaging your inside thigh muscles; donít grip round your hips. Also keep your bottom relaxed and do not bunch up your tummy muscles while doing this exercise. It is very gentle and subtle.
