Start on your side with your feet stacked one over the other and use both of your bottom forearms to support yourself underneath.
Start by lying down facing up, then bring both legs together so that they are touching and place them under a pillow for comfort (and to help you feel relaxed). Place one arm along each leg like an “X” across where it naturally falls; this will be very helpful in balancing as we move forward into some challenging poses! Now follow these steps: rest the first top of forearms directly below shoulders while the stomach is grounded onto earthy flooring. Once comfortable, slowly start lifting hips upward towards until upper back can relax against the ground without moving arms or shoulder blades.
This is a great stretch for your lower back and hamstrings. Try to hold this position for 20-40 seconds, or as long as you can handle it!
Holding the stretches in each of these exercises should give you about 45 minutes worth of work out time.
Side Plank Dips
Side plank dips are a challenging way to activate the obliques in an elevated side plank. This exercise primarily targets the oblique muscles but also works other body parts (shoulders, core, hips).
