Exercise of the Month
April: Four Point Kneeling
This is a favoured exercise of leading Canadian back specialist Professor Stuart McGill.
Rest on your hands and knees and imagine a glass of wine on your back which you don’t want to spill. You shoulder blades should be nice and wide, lift up into the breastbone. Lengthen the opposite hand and opposite leg away from each other, and only rise as far as your tabletop flat back. Remember to lift the abdomen. Keep the movement fluid and then perform on the opposite side.
Repeat eight times.
Always seek appropriate professional advice prior to any new exercise activity. If you experience any discomfort, please seek medical attention.
