This week I’m going to be posting about how to ‘switch your workout’.
Depending on your ability, mobility and how you’re feeling on the day. I’ll show you how you can step up or step down an exercise.
Today is about back extension. The top video is how we’d normally do the exercise. Focusing on keeping the core engaged whilst lifting and lowering the upper spine, you shouldn’t feel any pressure on the lower spine.
The bottom left video shows the same exercise but with the legs in a ‘V’ position. This reduces pressure on the spine, ideal if you’ve got a grumpy spine.
The bottom right video shows the back extension with the addition of hovering the arms over the mat. This needs more control through the core and spine.
Comment below and let me know which level you prefer.
