EXERCISE OF THE WEEK - Modified Superman

This is a great exercise to encourage thoracic extension, while also strengthening the extensor muscles of the back.

- Lie on the exercise ball, with the legs extended, and feet about hip width apart for balance. Rest your chin on the ball

- With a smooth movement, draw the shoulder blades back, while turning the palms up towards the ceiling, extending the arms

- Hold this position for the count of 5, and slowly return to the starting position

- Repeat 10-15 times, 1-3 sets

Stop if you experience pain.
