Are you having lower back pain and postural concern? Are you looking gain strength at the same time? We will work around your busy work schedule and guide you to an individualised gym program. . . . That way you can no longer feel as stiff in your movements and strategies and therefore be able to manage pain independently.
Today I’m going show you an exercise to work on the stability of the foot. So, all you’re going to need is a band and you’re going to attach it to something stable like a pole. Then your going to get some tension onto the band. Place the band underneath the knuckle of your big toe and just make sure that the band is on the inside of the foot. Placing that big knuckle there and just pressing the big toe down and balancing.
While you’re doing this, you want to think 3 point through the foot. Putting pressure though the big toe, your pinkie toe and your heel and thinking of that triangle there will help keep you nice and steady.
Make sure you’re also paying attention to your hips at this point. You need to make sure that’s not dropping on either side and that it stays nice and levelled through. Also make sure your toes aren’t clawing too much as you do this exercise.
Start on your knees and place your chest on a swiss ball.
Begin with the correct neck posture. Do not let the head drop. Do not look upwards with the chin poking out. Keep the chin tucked in and look towards the floor.
1st pose: Pull the arms back, squeeze the shoulder blades together and hold for 3 seconds. Keep the core tight.
2nd pose: Hold your arms in a ‘W’ position with elbows bent at 90 degrees. Pull arms back squeezing the shoulder blades together for 3 seconds.
3rd pose: Hold your arms out above your head in a ‘Y’ position. Lift up and hold for 3 seconds.
To progress further and get your core working a bit more, try the same exercises on your toes with your legs straight:
