Core Moves to Prevent Pesky Injuries
Practice this to fight the slouch when you're tired. It works your back extensors, hip flexors, and chest.
To do: Lie on your stomach with your hands outside your shoulders. Contract your core muscles so that your belly pulls away from the mat. Look forward, and inhale while slowly lifting your torso. Hold for one inhale/exhale cycle; slowly return to start. Repeat eight times.
This Move Works:
Chest, Core, Hips, Lower Back
