Pelvic Rocking

Pelvic-rocking exercise

This exercise strengthens your back, hip, and abdomen muscles.

  • Positioned on your hands and knees, place your hands directly under your shoulders and your knees under your hips.
  • Breathe in deeply. Tuck your head downward and round your back up, making a curve with your back in the shape of the letter C. Hold this position for a count of 6.
  • Breathe out slowly and bring your head back up. Relax, keeping your back straight-don't allow it to curve toward the floor. Hold this for a count of 6.
  • Do this exercise 8 times or to your comfort level.
