This is a great move to work the lower back, hamstrings and the glutes. Added bonus...really extend those arms to give your shoulders a run for their money! My clients grumble every time I make them do this move, but it is totally worth it!
*How to pictures at the bottom!
Lower back, Glutes (butt), hamstrings
- Lie face down with legs straight out behind you and arms straight out in front of you…like Superman
- Lift you arms, chest and legs off the floor…squeeze your butt cheeks and hold for a beat!
- Return to the start position, but don’t let your feet and hands touch the ground. They should hover a couple of inches above the ground
Important: Nice, slow controlled movement
