Yoga for forearm strength
Come on all fours with knees on the floor inline with the hips. The shin bones are firmly on the floor, the toes can be flexed or towards the ground, the palms are in line with the shoulders.
Inhale; walk the palms forward and the hips back. As you exhale, move your buttocks halfway back toward your heels. Keep the hips in line to the knees and try to keep the elbows off the floor.
Exhale; touch the forehead or chin on the floor or use a block or a bolster if this is not comfortable and touch the forehead on the prop. Keep the natural curve of the spine and try not to over-arch the lower back. Contract the lower abdominal muscles in to support the spine. Breathe deeply.
