Summer Shape Up Challenge: Bow Pose

Demonstrated by Taylor Nelms

Bow Pose – Lie on your stomach with your arms along your torso, palms up. Keeping your legs in line with your hips, bend your knees and hold your ankles. Inhale and lift your stomach and chest while stretching your legs up and back. Focus on your breathe and body position, you should look like a bow. Hold for 15-30 seconds. Benefits: Tones the back, abs, arms and legs as well as stimulates digestive and reproductive muscles. Your chest, shoulders and back will open up and become more flexible. Tips: To makes this pose harder, do it while your knees, thighs and feet are touching.
