Opposite-arms-leg-raises

 

The best form of exercise for this body type is to team high-intensity interval cardio with strength training.

 

1. Back/shoulders: Opposite arm/leg raises
3 x 10 reps on each side, 15 seconds rest between sets

Lie on your stomach with your arms above your head. Place your forehead or chin on the ground. Squeezing your bottom gently and pressing both hips into the ground, gently lift your right arm and left leg off the ground about 10cm. Avoid arching your back too much. Slowly lower them back to the ground, and repeat on the other side.

Why it works: This exercise helps to strengthen the back without jarring movements. It's a slow, controlled motion that also helps with core stability and balance.
