Exercise of the week!

Starting position

Supine position, bent knees, feet on the mat hip width apart. Arms bent at the elbow, close to te ribs, forearms vertical, hands holding the dumbbells.



Inhale and during exhalation come to a bridging position moving vertebrae by vertebrae.

Inhale, exhale and extend the arms towards the ceiling over the shoulders. Out stretch your arms above your head so that the dumbbell descends. Reverse the movement back to the starting position.

Keep body weight on the shoulders not on the cervical area

Do not forget to breathe

Extends the arms over the shoulders first and …over the head afterwards
