When I see people do hollow holds (and I am not coaching) I sometimes cringe because I see the shape above. Notice how his lower back is off the ground? This is very bad! It isn't working your abs well and it could be damaging your back! Hollow holds should always have a flat or rounded lower back. If you have any space under your lower back then stop doing that hollow hold.
Ok you are wondering what do you do? Do the dead bug!
Round up with a bent legs and rounded lower back with your shoulders off the ground. Hold this shape and as you get stronger you can straighten your legs and hips to a hollow shape. If your lower back starts coming off the ground then go back to the dead bug! You will eventually be strong enough to do a perfect and safe hollow shape!
