Audio from the Belly Angels Video
Next we’ve got some belly angels.
Now belly angels are a good exercise for working the lower back. And as you know, the core muscles extend from the front all the way around the body and into the back as well. It’s not just the muscles of the front. We need to balance them out, front and back. So the belly angels really work hard at working the back of the body. This is what they look like.
So you start by lying on your belly, feet together, hands out in front and together. From here you’re going to lift up both arms and legs. Legs open, arms open. And then we close again. That’s one repetition. Two. Three. Four. If you struggle with that exercise, then you can either just work on the leg part this way or just work on the arm part. So you’ve got a couple of variations there. But if possible, for this challenge we’re working on both. Up and out. And you’re going to find that works your back very, very hard.
We’re trying to do 40 repetitions in total. A good exercise and excellent exercise for your posture as well. So give that one a go. Best of luck.
