This exercise strengthens the hamstrings and triceps while opening the chest and the front of the hips.
To do this exercise you will need a mat. Start sitting with your knees bent and your hands placed in the ground behind you. Inhale into the back of your ribcage and then exhale as you press your hands and your feet into the ground and lift your pelvis into a table position. Inhale as you fold at the hip sockets and then repeat.
Things to think about
Keep your neck as long as possible by sliding your shoulder blades down your back. If your chest is open your triceps will be strong.
Be sure that your knee alignment is strong in this exercise. Your knees should be in line with your second and third toes.
