Hey Rob,
I've been working with that first exercise and am wondering if I'm doing it right. Am I meant to feel it in my abs also? I find that when I've got the small of my back flattened out it really puts the emphasis on my abs although I feel that ming mein area working too. All in all this exercise makes me feel pretty damn uncoordinated!
Sorry Johan, didn't mean to ignore you ^^;
Just realized you posted something after I saw Dave respond to your post.

Just to allay any fears, yes I did feel tension in the abs when I did them against the wall.
But no you don't have to keep that tension when you move around daily, or do the exercises without a wall.
The wall is more there to correct the "spine."

And yes you'll feel miserably uncoordinated/unconnected at first.
The Wall is a harsh teacher
