Hollow Rock – Cultivating a good, neutral spine during movement.

This is one of the most important things I’ve learned in the past 6 months of my own training – what gymnasts call the “hollow body” position.  Learn it, know it, and cultivate it everyday in your movements.  Not only will it make you stronger (better able to transfer power through joints), it will keep your core solid and safe during exercise.  Thanks @gymnasticswod and @carlpaoli for the amazing introductory videos.  I try to add hollow-rocks and V-ups into my training 3-4 days a week.
