Brace your core (not by sucking in), and hinge forward at the hips. If you have tight hamstrings, you can bend your knees a bit more than the lady does in the above video. And don’t forget to stretch those hamstrings, either. Allow your hands to touch the floor, and take small “steps” with your hands forward until your hands are in front of your head and your shoulders. The key to this part of the movement is do resist rotation or movement through your torso as much as possible. That is your “core” attempting to stabilize while the rest of your body moves. You want to keep a neutral spine (think about sticking your bum in the air). Again, if you have long legs and/or tight hips, you can have a bit of a bend at your knee to keep your spine neutral. If you see your back rounding excessively, bend your knees more. This is a good exercise to do in front of a mirror until you get the hang of it. Another tip is to widen your stance a bit if you feel like your spine is rounding too much.
