February’s Fitness Tip with Kerry Engle, Shaker Pointe’s Fitness Director
The purpose of this exercise is to stretch and extend the lower back and hip muscles.
Follow these Steps:
Step 1: Begin by getting on your hands and knees, place your pelvis in a neutral position. Your hands should be directly under your shoulders
Step 2: Begin to bring your right leg back, extending it behind you, no higher than hip level. Try not to shift your hips when you extend your leg back. Keep your hips parallel to the ground.
Step 3: Return to the starting position and repeat 10 times. Be sure to exhale during the backward movement phase, and inhale during the forward movement phase.
