What It Does
Works the upper portion of the abdominal muscles, building heat and strength in the solar plexus.
How to Do It
Start on your back. Lift your legs straight up. Breathe in. Lift your shoulder blades and reach your right arm up and across toward your left foot as you exhale (your other arm should be relaxed, but not resting on the floor). Inhale as you come back down to start, with shoulder blades still raised.
Exhale as you reach your left arm toward your right foot. Keep your hips still. Alternate arms for 20 counts.
