2. “Wipers”

I.p. – the same as in the first exercise.

So, while exhaling, try to raise the pelvis as high as possible, while squeezing the gluteal muscles several times.

For Back Pain

9. Pull Up

Position- Straighten up, legs straight, arms at your sides.

Very effective for back pain. Wrap your arms around the leg bent at the knees and press it to your chest, lifting your back from the bed and trying to touch your knee with your chin. Change your leg. Do the exercise 15 times.

There may be pain in the lumbar and thoracic spine. Therefore, the exercise must be done smoothly, on the exhale.

For abdominals

10. “We pull in the stomach”

Position – legs bent at the knees, soles firmly on the bed. The palm of the right or left hand lies on the stomach.

As you inhale, stick out, as you exhale, pull in the stomach (so that the palm falls with the stomach). After a short delay in breathing, the breath returns by itself. Do 20-30 repetitions.

IMPORTANT! Sometimes when doing these exercises, cramps in the calf muscles can occur. Don’t be scared – you are on the right track. Massage your muscles and keep exercising.

Why is it important to strengthen your feet?
The foot, together with the ankle joint, not only cushions, reduces the load on the back, it also bears the entire weight of the body, sometimes excessive.

There are 27 bones in the foot and ankle joint, the same number of muscles and 109 ligaments – a little less than in the hand. But in fact, our feet are far from being as mobile and developed as our hands.

This is despite the fact that it is on the feet that the so-called ascending meridians are located, with which acupuncturists work, relieving us of headaches and other pains.

Therefore, it is so important to do at least a little warm-up in the morning in bed to help our legs be mobile and light.
