Move Targets: Total body


Step 1: Lie face down on the floor. Stretch your legs back, with the tops of your feet on the floor. Bend your elbows and spread your palms on the floor beside your waist.

Step 2: Inhale and slowly push up so your arms are straight, chest is up and back is rounded. Hold this pose for as long as you can, feeling the stretch through your abdominal and lumbar muscles.
