Looking for some new moves to add to your home program this week? Here Elie demonstrates one of your November Five, the Pilates exercise Digging Trenches.Try this move at home (with or without the foam roller) to strengthen your back, core and shoulders.
Zip up your abdominals, press your forearms down into the roller and lift your back and chest. Slowly lower back down.
Notice how she keeps her back long, and shoulders away from her ears? Try for one minute of this move several times this week.
I ordered some more foam rollers and they arrived this week. Contact me if you would like one of your very own. I use mine daily to keep my back and core strong. You can also roll on it to alleviate tight muscles. My favorite low back stabilization program includes toe dips, bicycle legs, leg circles and dead bug. If you suffer from low back pain, this is one tool you definitely need in your toolbox.
