To start, lie on your back, knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Keep your ears, shoulders, and hips aligned, but don’t press your lower back to the floor. Rest your hands on your pelvis. Breathe deeply and relax. Tighten the abdominal muscles to keep the back from arching.
Raise one arm overhead, then lower it. As you lower that arm, raise the other arm.
Continue to move both arms in slow, smooth arcs. Keep your arms straight and your head and neck relaxed.
Repeat 10 times with each arm.
For your safety, check with your healthcare provider before starting an exercise program.
