A good exercise to increase muscular endurance of the shoulders, back, and glutes.
- Start on an yoga mat on all fours. Engage your abdominals while you maintain normal breathing.
- Raise your left arm and right leg. The maximum height you should go is to horizontal; you don't have to lift that high when you are first starting this exercise. Only go as high as you can without 'hollowing' your low back.
- Slowly return to the start position.
Repeat 10 - 12 times, then switch and do the other arm & leg. Repeat the entire sequence as desired.
