The Snake is an advanced exercise ( modifications can always be made)  which requires strong torso stability. It strengthens the abdominals and hip flexor, the rotator cuff, latissimus dorsi, as well as develops coordination and control.  Perform 3 reps on each side.

 

The Movement: Inhale and press the carriage out lowering the hips until the torso is straight and you are looking straight ahead. Exhale  and return to the starting postion by engaging the abdominals. Reminders: Keep the shoulders away from the ears, keep the abdominals engaged through out the exercise, do not drop the hips and maintain torso alignment. * As always check with your doctor before starting an exercise program.
