Abdominal strengthening exercise (iii)

This exercise enhances your core stability, in particular the muscle groups of the lumbar spine.

Rest on all fours, again using a cushion if you have any knee problems. Draw your navel up towards your spine as you breathe out. At the same time, raise one arm and the opposite leg simultaneously to a count of 10.

If you have trouble with your balance, start by just raising each leg in turn.

Perform the exercise with the other arm and leg, and do 4 raises on each side.
