1. Reverse Snow Angels
Lie on your stomach with your hands above your head and your palms facing down. Pick your shoulders up while bringing your arms down to the side of your body with your palms now facing up. On the transfer, try to lift your arms as high as possible to maximize back engagement.
Then, lift your shoulders up again and bring your arms back to the starting position following the same rotation of hand positioning. You should be squeezing your lats hard the whole time throughout this exercise!
2. Seal Push-Ups
With your lower body on the ground and hips staying planted, push your upper body backward and upward forming the upright position of a seal stretch. The tension pushing back should be maximized through the lats and erectors. While maintaining this back engagement, come back down to the starting position & repeat.
3. Pulse Rows
Lie on your stomach with your hands by your sides and your palms facing up. Squeeze your shoulder blades and lats to lift your shoulders off the ground. Hold in this position for 1-2 seconds and return to the starting position. Repeat!
Lie on your stomach with your hands above your head and your palms facing down. Squeeze your traps to reach your hands forward. This reach should be a shrugging motion. Hold in this position for 1-2 seconds and return to the starting position. Repeat!
Lie on your stomach with your hands above your head and your palms facing down. Simultaneously lift your arms and legs off the ground while keeping your hips on the ground. Squeeze your core to stabilize and the primary tension should be felt in your lower back.
Hold in this position for 1-2 seconds and return to the starting position. Repeat!
