Lie on your stomach with your elbows close to your sides and directly under your shoulders, palms down and fingers facing forward. Contract your thighs to extend your legs, pulling the toes toward your shins, and engage your abdominal muscles to stiffen your torso. Slowly lift your torso off the ground and hold this position, avoiding any sagging in the low back, hiking of the hips or bending of the knees. Don’t forget to breathe as you hold this position, keeping the shoulders positioned directly over the elbows, then gently lower your body back toward the floor. Hold for 5-20 seconds.
