Back Workout

Hi everybody!  Today’s workout is for your back.  It’s an often overlooked but vital section of the core, and it serves more purposes than to get a higher arabesque – it supports every movement that you do!

So, without further ado, let’s get into this back workout that will BURN…


Workout video

The exercises

  • 1 minute – Cat/cow stretches
  • 15 – Pillow backups
  • 25 – Leg lifts
  • 25 – Full backups
  • 30 sec – Cobra pose hold
  • 30 sec – Swimming
  • 15 – Seal crunches
  • 1 min – Circle stretch

My tips

  • Do this followed by or following abdominal wall exercises.  It’s important that you have balance throughout all muscles of your core for pristine balance and technique.  You can use my abdominal workout that is under the workout tag at the bottom of this post for that.
  • Do this as a warm up for class or rehearsal!  Back exercises warm you up seriously fast, so this is great for a warm up.
  • You don’t need to do gentle stretches or a warm up before performing these exercises.  We start out slow and make sure your back is warm and loose before doing full back ups.  So, don’t worry about doing a warm up.
