1. Lay on your back with feet flat on the ground and knees at a 90 degree angle. Keep your arms on your sides with your palms facing down. Begin breathing in threw your nose and out threw your mouth.
2. Exhale and reach your hands out toward your ankles. Inhale and exhale, lift your upper body (your head, shoulders, and shoulder blades) off the ground. Continue holding your arms outstretched toward your ankles.
3. Remember to keep breathing. Hold your upper body up off the ground while you move your arms extended over your head.
4. Take a deep breath in and circle your arms around back to the start position with them stretching towards your ankles. Repeat this exercise for 5-10 reps. You may only be able to do it a few times at first, but the more you do it the stronger you’ll get.
