Circuit One: Cat Cow Series
Reps: Five in each position
- Start on all fours with hands directly under shoulders with hips and knees aligned.
- First, inhale to look up to arch your back for the "cow" portion of the move; then, exhale, pulling the abs to the spine and rounding your back like a scared cat. Repeat for a total of five reps.
- Next, keeping your spine parallel to the floor, bend sideways to look at your butt, and then switch sides. Repeat for a total of five reps.
- Finish the series twisting the spine by reaching your right arm toward the ceiling on an inhale. Exhale and rotate through your ribs to reach your arm toward the left. Repeat for a total of five reps, and then switch sides.
This series is great for creating spinal mobility, warming up your back, and waking up your core muscles.
