Day 229: Downward Dog Tuck

Leave a comment

This is an easier exercise after yesterday’s challenging core twists. This exercise strengthens your shoulders, back, abs , butt, thighs, and calves.

How To Do It:
1. Start in downward dog (get on all fours on the mat, tuck your toes under and press your hips up to form an inverted V).

2. Shift your hips back slightly and bend your knees towards your chest as you round your back into a tuck. Pull your belly button towards your spine to engage your abs.

3. Return to downward dog to complete 1 rep.

4. Do 2 sets of 10 reps.
