Gravity, Meet Your Match!

on October 7, 2008

Stop the sag with this move — a souped-up version of the classic "superman" exercise — that lifts and tones your bottom, strengthens your back and tightens your tummy.

  1. Secure one end of an elastic resistance band (at sporting goods stores) to the leg of a couch or heavy chair and attach the other end to your left foot.
  2. Get on your hands and knees with your legs farthest away from where you secured your resistance band.
  3. Exhale as you extend your left leg straight back while reaching out with your right hand.
  4. Inhale as you slowly lower both your arm and leg (don't touch the floor!) and repeat for a total of 15 reps.
  5. Switch sides for another 15 reps. Do three sets twice a week to achieve your best results.
