Instructions: How To

This exercise is a more complex variation of the superman. Like a standard superman, this exercise primarily targets your back, lower back, glutes, and hamstrings. In addition to the usual benefits of a superman, the added movement gives you more range of motion to help engage your back.

  1. Lie face down on the ground or on a mat with a loop band around your wrists.
  2. Double up the loop band if you need more tension in the band.
  3. Engage the muscles on the back of your body to raise your chest, arms and legs off the ground.
  4. Hold this position.
  5. Engage your back and shoulders to pull the band apart.
  6. Bring your elbows down toward your sides.
  7. If you can, pull the band behind your head.
  8. Hold your farthest contraction for a moment before reversing the movement.
  9. Return to the starting position.
