Mobility Drill to Reverse Forward Slumping of Your Spine

This is an excellent exercise for improving extension through your spine and reversing the effects of forward slumping of your spine.

Start on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the ground.

Elevate your pelvis toward the ceiling as far as it will rise, then reach diagonally above your head with one hand and touch the ground as far away from your head as you comfortably can.

Alternate from side to side, and as you reach above your head to touch the ground, focus on feeling extension through your spine.

Be sure to maintain steady breathing throughout. It's always beneficial to breathe deeply from your abdomen in a controlled manner.

You can work up to 10 repetitions with each arm.
