Why it works: This familiar compound yoga move improves flexibility to the lumbar and cervical spine but also opens up the chest, which is especially important if you’re training after a long day of sitting.
How to do it: Start on all fours with hands beneath your shoulders and knees on the ground. Inhale, dropping your chest as you push your hips and shoulder blades back into cow position. Lift your chin and chest and gaze forward. For cat, exhale as you draw your belly button to your spine and round your back toward the ceiling.
