Let’s move on to the back extension. Now the back extension works all of the muscles down the back of the body. As you may now, the core muscles extend from the front all the way around to the back. They don’t just include muscles at the front, the six-pack ab muscles. They include all muscles all the way around. This back extension is a good exercise for activating all the muscles at the back and improving your posture. This is how we do it.
Lie down on your belly. This is such a simple exercise. You’re going to like it, hands out in front. You want to try and get the body as long as you can. Imagine you’re being stretched out here. As you’re looking down, you’re going to extend the legs up and the hands up at the same time. Squeeze your buttocks nice and tight, keeping the eyes looking down. Up we go. Squeeze. Back down. Up we go. Squeeze. Back down. Really simple exercise.
You’re going to do 50 of those in total. That’s the back extension, and it’s excellent for if you spend a lot of time sitting because it strengthens the muscles at the back of the body, so it’s great for your posture.
