Pelvic-rocking exercise

This exercise strengthens your back, hip, and abdomen muscles.

  1. Positioned on your hands and knees, place your hands directly under your shoulders and your knees under your hips.
  2. Breathe in deeply. Tuck your head downward and round your back up, making a curve with your back in the shape of the letter C. Hold this position for a count of 6.
  3. Breathe out slowly and bring your head back up. Relax, keeping your back straight—don't allow it to curve toward the floor. Hold this for a count of 6.
  4. Do this exercise 8 times or to your comfort level.
