Three sets of eight reps on each side, with a minute rest between each set.
• Lie on your right side, with right arm fully extended, left foot crossed over the right. • Extend left arm over head and push up with left leg, until both legs are straight. • Keep body straight and reach left hand over your head as far as possible. You should feel the strain through the oblique muscles on the right side of your body. • Hold for one-two seconds. • Return to the original position and repeat with the opposite side.
AVOID TWISTING YOUR BODY. KEEP YOUR PELVIS PERPENDICULAR TO THE GROUND DURING EACH STRETCH.
