Superman

This move targets your entire back, an essential part of your core. Lie on your stomach with your arms and legs extended so you look like Superman flying through the air. Lift your right arm with the left leg, then alternate sides. Practice variations of this move by only lifting the arms or only lifting the leg, or both arms and both legs at the same time. Focus on extending your limbs long and out rather than simply lifting up.
