The February Five Exercises

About the Five:

Each month I offer five exercises to improve your strength, balance, flexibility, and mobility. My hope is that you will go through these on your own or with me three times a week.

Some moves (like this month’s bridge) you could do every day.

If you do The Five each month, over the course of the year you will have taken yourself through a well rounded strength program that includes upper body, lower body, back, core, standing balance, mobility and flexibility.

  • Bridge
  • Cobra
  • Side-Lying Leg Lift
  • Saw
  • Teaser

Please use your best judgment as to how suitable these are for you right now.
