Hey Fit Family,
It is extremely important that after you have finished working out your abdominal that you also work out the back to ensure that you don’t have any muscle imbalances and to keep the core strong and stable as well as enhance your posture. Here is a short routine that will also strengthen the core as well.
Short Back workout –
Cat and Cow – alternating with each deep breath. This is great to warm up the spine. Repeat this for 10 breaths. Note – I have only taken a photo of the cow position
Birddog – Hold for 30 seconds per side and repeat one more time. Lengthen the arm and leg, keep the core tight to prevent lower back tension and lift up through the chest keeping the shoulder away from the ear.
Superman – Lift and hold for a count of 3 deep breaths before lowering repeat 5 times
Shoulder bridge – Push through the heels, core tight and lift up so that the shoulder, hips and knees are in line, take a deep breath and slowly lower back down. Repeat 10 times.
Repeat this 1-2 more times.
Hope you enjoy
