Superman Pose: Tone Up Ab Muscle And Relieve Back Pain In A Minute

Superman Pose: Tone Up Ab Muscle And Relieve Back Pain In A Minute

The Superman Pose is similar to a flying superman high in the air.

I hold this pose every day for at least a minute. It is particularly helpful in strengthening my lower back muscles.

    How to do Superman Pose?

    • Lie on your stomach with your toes flat on the floor; chin resting on the ground.
    • Keep your legs close together with your feet lightly touching each other.
    • Now stretch your arms out to the front as far as you can.
    • Take a deep breath in and now lift your chest, arms, legs and thighs off the floor.  You resemble a flying super hero – Superman! Spread the smile on your face – superheroes are always happy, especially in flight. Rather than making an effort to raise your hands and legs more, make a gentle effort to stretch your arms and legs away from your torso. So, feel the pull that is occurring at both ends. Ensure that your elbows and knees are not bent.
    • Keep breathing with awareness; keeping your attention on the stretch.
    • As you exhale, gently lower your chest, arms and legs.

    Why I keep doing the superman pose every day?

    1. Stretches and strengthens my muscles of the chest, shoulders, arms, legs, abdomen and the lower back
    2. Tones my abdomen and lower back
    3. Massages the spine and keeps my back supple
    4. Helps stretch my chest
    5. Improves blood circulation
    6. Also works at the mind level – when I take off, I can’t but stay in the present moment. Even if I want to, I can’t hardly think about any problem!
    7. Can be a good workout for the abs and stomach

    Remember that it is perseverance that counts. You’ll soon tell the differences if you can persist in sparing a minute for it!

    Why Is Exercising Important?

    Of course, you will think of a thousand excuses why this is not the right time to start exercising. So, before I proceed with telling you all about these 5 fitness tips that are meant to help you with your exercising routine, I will start off by sharing some of the many benefits of exercising. This way you can see for yourself that for every excuse you can think of, there is a benefit that will make you forget all about it!

    • Exercising is the perfect way to get rid of that unwanted body weight and control your weight from now on! Not to mention it’s completely healthy compared with all those expensive, promising products filled with chemicals.
    • Exercising reduces the risk for Diabetes 2 and heart attacks. If you are at risk for these conditions, then exercising is the best way to fight it.
    • Exercising helps with pain and stiffness relief with all types of arthritis.
    • Exercising strengthens your bones and muscles.
    • Exercising improves your mood and helps you maintain your mental health.

    For whatever reason you have dedicated to starting exercising, I congratulate you! Knowing how many people are out there suffering from types of arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, strokes, etc., choosing exercising to become a part of your everyday routine is the smartest decision that you could have done! And you are not alone.

    To start you off, here are these 5 fabulous fitness tips that will help you start yet another year on the right path!

    1. Schedule your workouts

    Make time each Sunday to make a week plan that will include enough time for your workouts. That way, you will not be able to make the excuse that you do not have the time to spend at least an hour a day exercising.

    2. Do not wait for Monday to come

    Aren’t you tired of making the same plan over and over and not fulfilling it? Yes, we are talking about that good old plan to start exercising on Monday. Instead, start exercising right now. It is completely irrelevant if it is Tuesday, or Friday, or any other day! Start exercising whenever you feel the urge!

    3. Find a workout plan that will work for you

    Do not choose a workout plan just because your best friend has chosen it. Choose whatever you feel comfortable doing, are capable of doing, and most importantly, what you love. If you do not like to run, then don’t! Do a 30-minute cardio routine at home instead. If needed, you can hire a personal trainer, who will hear all of your interests when it comes to exercising, and create a promising exercising plan just for you!

    4. Remember why you work out

    Do not let yourself forget why you have started working out in the first place. Motivation is everything when it comes to exercising! Create a motivation board near your mirror that will remind you each day why you started as you look in the mirror every day.

    5. Leave out the big expectations for later

    If you are just starting to exercise now, it is essential to be proud of what you can accomplish right now. Do not get disappointed if you can’t run for an hour; it is normal! You will soon run for an hour and more if you just stick to your plan!

    Exercising is fun, beneficial, and probably the best activity that you could have chosen to start your year right! Choose the best diet plan to go with your new exercising routine, and enjoy in the results that are soon to come. And to help you through the process, look back at these fitness tips to help you stay on track with your new exercising routine! Use these tips to keep yourself healthy, or get rid of that unwanted body weight gained during the holidays, and love your soon to be fit body starting today!
