This exercise helps strengthen and stretch your entire backside by elongating everything from head to toe. Keep your abs engaged and imagine pulling your arms and legs as far away from each other as possible.
- Lie facedown on mat with legs together and extended, arms extended overhead.
- Keeping shoulders down, abs engaged and body in a straight line, lift head, arms and legs a few inches off mat.
- Reach everything away from your center, pointing your toes and fingers, as you begin to flutter kick arms and legs, pulsing up and down quickly with opposite arm and leg (as if swimming).
