How to: Floor Slide
- Start by lying flat on your back, ensuring that you maintain a neutral spine. Place your hands on the floor next to your head with your palms facing up and your elbows bent at approximately 90 degrees. Draw your shoulder blades down and back. This is your starting position. Inhale. Exhale and slowly slide your forearms along the floor until your arms are extended straight overhead, ensuring that your hands and wrists remain on the floor at all times. You should feel your shoulder blades squeezing together to remain down and back throughout the entire movement. Inhale and slowly slide your forearms along the floor to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions or time.
