Swimming is a good exercise for strengthening the whole back side of your body. Who doesn’t want that?
Start by lying on your stomach with your arms and legs extended. Arms will be shoulder distance apart and legs will be hip distance apart. Pull your abdominals up away from the mat and squeeze your buns. Keep your shoulders pulled down away from your ears.
Before you begin take a breath in. On your exhale, lift your arms and legs up off the mat. Keep your head in line with your spine and look down at your mat. Your next inhale will be for 5 counts as you paddle your arms and legs gently as if swimming. Then, exhale for 5 counts and continue to paddle.
Perform 3-5 sets of inhales and exhales.
