Core Stabilizer Workout

05/31/2014

Engage your abs and back while increasing core stability and balance with this simple yet powerful movement, also known as the Quadruped Thoracic Extension/Rotation.

  • Step 1

    Kneel down on all fours, with your hands directly aligned underneath your shoulders and your knees directly aligned with your hips, in neutral spine, with your abdomen drawn in.

  • Step 2

    While supporting your upper body with one hand on the ground, place one hand behind your head & point your elbow to the side. Brace your core & rotate your right shoulder toward your left arm.

  • Step 3

    Follow your elbow with your eyes as you reverse the movement until your right elbow points toward the ceiling. Repeat 10–12 times. Now switch sides and repeat.
