Audio for the Prone Cobra Stability Ball Video
Right, next on to the prone cobra.Â What the prone cobra does is it works the back of the body which is excellent for strengthening up all of those postural muscles that are going to help you stand up nice and tall and improve posture. Here we go.
You want to lie over the ball with the ball on your mid-section area, so just below your rib cage area. From here you want to spread your feet a little bit wider than shoulder width, hands are going to go up front just down here. From here the arms are going to come back, and the thumbs are going to point up as we arch the back. Keep looking down, and then we drop down in front again. Back up…then down…
Now, the more forward you are on the balls, the more you roll forward this way, the more demanding the exercise is going to be. And the further back this way, the easier the exercise is going to be. So work on getting your balance and try to push your body as far forward as you can, As you come back, make sure you squeeze your glute muscles, Your buttock muscles, nice and tight. Keep your vision down and pull your shoulder blades in together once you rotate those hands out. A great exercise for working the back of the body.
You’re going to do 20 repetitions in total. Enjoy it.
