Superman Exercise (Regression)
How to: Superman Exercise (Regression)
- Start by lying flat on your stomach on a yoga mat with both legs extended behind you, toes untucked. Place your forearms on top of one another parallel to (in line with) the front edge of the mat and lower your head to rest on top of your forearms. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Elevate your head and chest off the mat and reach your hands towards your feet, drawing your shoulder blades down and back. At the same time, elevate your legs off the mat slightly with feet pointed. Draw your belly button in towards your spine to prevent discomfort in your lower back.
- Hold this position for approximately five seconds before lowering your legs, chest, forearms and head to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
