To start, lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Don’t press your neck or lower back to the floor. Breathe deeply. You should feel comfortable and relaxed in this position.

  • Slowly raise your hips upward.

  • Tighten your abdomen and buttocks. Be careful not to arch your back.

  • Hold for 5 seconds. Lower your hips to the floor.

  • Repeat 10 times.

For your safety, check with your healthcare provider before starting an exercise program.
