Physiotherapist Charissa Fermelis shows you a stretch for your abs and back.
1. Lying face down with your hands tucked in next to your chest and your elbows pointing up, inhale to prepare.
2. Exhale and press through the hands to lift your chest upwards and forwards into upward facing dog.
3. Feel a stretch through your abdominals and lengthening up the spine, visualising yourself as a cobra. Carefully allow the head to tilt backwards to open the front of the neck and throat.
Your legs may seem like they’re not doing much, but they are working hard! Keep them glued together, with the toes pointing long to encourage toning and elongation through the whole body.
