2 SIDE BENDS
Open your eyes and extend one arm out to the side with your hand on the ground. Reach your opposite arm overhead, palm facing the midline, and lean over toward your extended arm. While in the side bend, breathe deeply and lift the bottom of your waist toward the sky to prevent compression of your lower back and abdomen. Fan open your side ribs and take 3–5 deep breaths, then repeat on the other side.
