5 moves for a strong spine
As our founder Jennie Brooks says, "you are only as healthy as your heart, your spine and your mind." The spine is the focal point of the body, and it's crucial for our whole health - both mental and physical - to care for it as such. Stabilizing and strengthening the muscles that support your core help fortify your spine and reinforce the rest of your body. Maria demonstrates 5 exercises that you can incorporate in your regular routine to promote spinal mobility and abdominal strengthening.
FLAT BACK BRIDGING
FOREARM PLANK HOLD
BONUS: OPPOSITE ARM AND LEG REACH
Form and control are mutually exclusive in each of the exercises; one cannot exist without the other. Take it slow, use your breath, check in with your body often, and above all - move mindfully. Consistently working on strengthening your back and abdominals can help pave the way for a life with minimal back pain and tension.

Hi, Maria! Thanks for the great set of exercises. I think after more than a year of work-from-home set-ups, with everyone hunched over their laptops or slinking away on the couch, we could all use more spinal mobility and core strength. Funnily enough, the people who hate core exercises are probably the ones that need it most! I love that these exercises are accessible even for complete beginners, and that they can be performed almost anywhere. Great reminder too on moving mindfully and breathing properly, as we often forget to do that when encountering a difficult exercise or position. Thanks!
