Yes, You Can!
Every month we will feature an exercise developed by our very own Personal Trainer, Mike Tattersall (as he says - Trainer to the Stars - 'cause we're all stars) - Ottawa, Ontario. We will use pictures to show an SSBBW doing the exercise and an explanation on how to do it. All our exercises can be done in the privacy of your own home and using things you have around the house. So throw your workout clothes on and get moving!
This month's exercise....
Equipment: Dining chair (no arms)
Starting Position : Sit on edge of chair, facing forward. Feet flat on floor, back straight, arms folded crossways (see picture)
- slowly lean backwards as you twist at the waist
- ensure you twist entire body so that you're looking to the right
- hold position for a few seconds and then slowly return to starting position
- repeat twisting to the left
Repetitions: Do as many as you can plus one (1) and work up to 15. (The 'plus one' is because your body gets the most benefit from the most dificult one to perform correctly.
Remember to breathe.
