Engage your abs and back while increasing core stability and balance with this simple yet powerful movement, also known as the Quadruped Thoracic Extension/Rotation.
Kneel down on all fours, with your hands directly aligned underneath your shoulders and your knees directly aligned with your hips, in neutral spine, with your abdomen drawn in.
While supporting your upper body with one hand on the ground, place one hand behind your head & point your elbow to the side. Brace your core & rotate your right shoulder toward your left arm.
Follow your elbow with your eyes as you reverse the movement until your right elbow points toward the ceiling. Repeat 10–12 times. Now switch sides and repeat.
