Objective:

To strengthen the chest, back and shoulder muscles. 

Target:

Spine, abdomen, hips, and legs

Safety Instructions and Technique:

Stand up with the legs about 3 feet apart. 

Place the two feet facing the same direction, bringing a good stretch to your legs. 

Open your arms parallel to the floor, breathe in while placing your right hand on your waist. 

Then bend the torso to the left, bringing your arms in a straight line, and stretching the spinal column.

Bring the upper body downwards towards your feet. 

The back must remain straight and strong. Bring one arm towards your front leg and the other upwards. The difficulty here can be varied by lowering the bottom hand more, even to the ankle or ground.
