SAVE YOUR SPINE
Use these exercises from back specialist Dr Ellis Friedman. Do them as a group, one set of each twice a day:
1/ Three-Position Sit-Up Lie on your back with your knees bent, feet flat, and your hands next to your eyes. Lift your torso 10 to 15 degrees off the floor, pause, then repeat at 30 degrees and at the top of your sit-up. Do 30 to 50 reps.
2/ Swimmer’s Backstroke Lie face-up on the floor with knees bent and feet flat. Crunch forward, lifting your shoulders as high as you can. Keeping your chest high, perform a backstroke one arm at a time, allowing your torso to twist. Repeat for 45 seconds, alternating arms.
2/ Superman Lie facedown with your arms extended in front of your head. Simultaneously lift your arms, shoulders, chest and legs off the floor as high as you can. Hold for 5 to 10 seconds; then lower and repeat. Do 20 to 30 reps.
