The April Five

About the Five: Each month I offer five exercises to improve your strength, balance, flexibility, and mobility. Could you do these exercises for one minute each every day this week, and see if your strength and mobility improve?

  • Cat/Cow
  • Leg Pull (Back)
  • Warrior II
  • Side Raise
  • Rolling to Standing

This month we feature a fun mobility exercise – Rolling to Standing!

How easy is it for you to get up and down off the floor? While we can use a variety of markers to gauge our health (waist measurements, cardiovascular tests, and strength tests, for example) an often overlooked aspect of fitness and longevity is mobility. If you have trouble getting up off the floor, this move is for you!

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