Foundations: Spinal Mobility & Strengthening – Bananas

Foundations: Spinal Mobility & Strengthening

Quick Intro: Bananas!

Go bananas this side bending exercise! ๐Ÿ™‚


What’s it good for? โ 

๐ŸŒŸ Spinal articulation and strengthening

๐ŸŒŸ Control and practising the side lying position.

A quick “how to”…


๐ŸŒŸ Begin by finding your neutral position by using the โ€œpelvic pushesโ€ from earlier.

๐ŸŒŸ Keep your heels together and inner thighs squeezed together so that your legs don’t separate!


Hints & Tips:

๐ŸŒŸ If you have difficulty with this exercise, try lifting alternately your legs then arms.

๐ŸŒŸ Think of reaching out rather that just lifting up your arm and legs.

๐ŸŒŸ Be careful not too curve forwards: maintain a neutral spine.ย  Don’t look at what your legs are doing – look straight ahead!
