#FitnessFriday – The Halti C
Grab a BOSU ball and try this exercise that helps to release hip flexors and improve back extension and mobility. Following two hip surgeries, a former patient performed this effective exercise during his recovery.
1. Knees will be about the width of the BOSU (or stacked pillows) with our pelvis on the ball, and hands wide infront.
2. Starting with your nose pointed down towards the floor, slowly lift the chest up, trying to keep the hips on the ball. Take a nice deep breath as you go through the motion. Then slowly go back down to the starting position.
3. For an added challenge, when you lift your chest up, raise 1 arm at a time up slowly, trying to keep your weight even on the ball.
