it took 30 minutes a day, five days a week for 2 months to get all the muscles trained.
hi - I teach different styles of bellydance plus polynesian dance
the trick to doing a backbend is to use your thighs and butt muscles to
lower yourself to the floor and lift back up again.
the muscles in your stomach area will tighten but it is actually your thighs
that are doing most if not all of the work and control/
to build up you muscles you need try kneeling on the floor resting your butt
on your heels// now lift up about an inch or two above your heels and do about
5-10 pelvic circles /// now slowly lower yourself back down and rest a bit
before you try it again
surprisingly this works quite well for strengthening the leg muscles to get you
let me know if you need more help ok?
