SPINAL STABILIZERS: Though it sounds scary, it’s just standing up straight and tightening your abdominal muscles. Pull your navel into your spine and engage your abs, keeping your chest up and your ribs down. Hold for 10 to 30 seconds, without holding your breath. Do this throughout cooking. If you’re shrugging your shoulders, tilting your spine forward, expanding your rib cage up and out, or tilting your pelvis, you’re doing it wrong. “Your abdominal wall should be pulling back toward your spine without any motion,” Wu says.
