Now it’s time to strengthen the lower back with an easy exercise we call Superman. Get on all fours, with your knees below your hips, hands below your shoulders. Have a nice flat back; pull your tummy in tight; and now just extend your right arm and left leg. Please make sure not to raise your leg too high, and then return back to the starting position.
1. Lying face down with arms and legs extended, rest your head on the mat and relax.
2. Gently raise your left arm and right leg into the air until you feel a squeeze in your lower back.
3. Hold for 3 seconds and lower. Repeat with your right arm and left leg.
Don't forget to follow these steps during your workout:
Step 1: Start off with a warm-up exercise routine.
Step 2: It’s time to do the 2 minute stretch routine.
Step 3: Jump in - it's time to do the exercise programme. Choose one of the four programmes.
Step 4: Now begin the cool-down routine.
Step 5: Time to finish with the stretch routine.
Step 6: Congratulations you just found your 30 minutes of activity today.
