AB FACT Free the belly! “You wouldn’t walk around with your glutes con­tracted all day or your arm curled half­way up, would you?” says trainer Galina Den­zel, coau­thor of Eat Well, Move Well, Live Well. “Keep­ing your abs pulled in for all that time can put ex­tra pres­sure on your stom­ach, uterus, and blad­der and de­crease the vol­ume of your

lungs.” Train­ing those core mus­cles cor­rectly dur­ing your work­outs— learn­ing how to en­gage them and keep them that way while do­ing moves (see Myth 6)— will teach them to au­to­mat­i­cally kick in to sta­bi­lize you.
