    Hi. I just received the Organs in Place tape. I have to tell you that it looks very weird to me.<img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle> Would you share your personal OIP experience with me? Thanks and cheers!

    Cheers!

    Hi all. I think this is as good a place as any to post this even though it's an old thread (hate to start another one on same topic).

    I've been doing the flat stomach exercises that came on the DVD with the book for almost a week now. I can feel my ab muscles, and I feel my butt during the tucks. However, as soon as I lift my bottom off the floor to let "gravity assist" I feel like everything is on my neck and my chin is like touching my chest. I am consciously trying to keep my shoulders down and I can feel my lats engaged, but I'm wondering if I am doing something wrong.

    Any ideas or advice is greatly appreciated!
    Donna

    I have been doing OIP for the past week and this morning my arms (bicep) area felt a little sore. Is this because when you are laying on the floor you are tighten your upper body. Is this a good sore or am I doing something incorrectly? I am following the CD.

    Thank you!

    Make sure when doing the OIP part that your butt is tucked and the lower back is pressed into the floor (not lifted off of the floor)Keep your shoulders pressed into the floor also. Also make certain that your chin is not tilted toward your chest, think to have an orange fit between your chest and chin.

    In what position are your hands and arms?

    Thanks for the reply. I will double check tonight to make sure my shoulders are pressed onto the floor. I will visualize an orange or stick one there. My arms are exactly how Teresa says, in a up position. Thanks.

    Ok...in the DVD Teresa has her bottom lifted off the floor during that whole section and lowers just before half frogs. So I should do it lying flat first?

    And I can feel my lats totally engaged and shoulders in the floor, but I do notice I am consciously pausing and pushing them back down. It's like the weight just scoots everything up there when ya do the butt tucks! LOL.

    Thanks

    I think maybe Michelle made a typo. HF is done with shoulders and lower back pressed into the floor. Aside from the initial setup, OIP is executed with hips off the floor (not real high, just a few inches).

    Ahhh...Maybe that's it! Maybe I am lifting my butt too high? LOL. I'll try keeping it a bit lower and see if I can rectify that

    Thanks for bumping. I was going to search this topic today. I've been doing OIP and HF for 3 weeks now. I'm noticing a definite difference when I go to do OIP. Everything seems to be higher and I'm not moving as much. I'm especially noticing it when I do the lower abdomen lift. I take it this is a good thing.
