The movement

 

With a small weight in one of your hands, you are going to slightly bend your knees, stand up straight and tilt your torso into your hips. You should be focusing on pulling your bellybutton into your stomach as you feel your rib cage tighten up.

Perform between 15-20 of these each side, for sets of 3-5, as this becomes easier over time, lightly increase your weight.
