Let us introduce you to the BACK of your body! We tend to under-emphasize these muscles because, well, we don’t see them in the mirror.
We also tend to use the front of the body, or the Anterior Chain, more simply because our eyes and hands work from the front of our bodies. We don’t chop veggies, type emails or throw frisbees behind us, usually.
Emphasizing the back of your body, or posterior chain, in your workouts helps build strength and correct imbalances which cause slumped posture and core dysfunction. Let’s do it!
You will need:
a yoga mat
a small towel you don’t mind running over the floor & getting dirty
Total time: about 20 minutes.
