Alphabet arms and legs
We have to admit that this exercise looks really simple, but it’s more challenging and difficult than you think. All you have to do is to fully extend your legs and lift them slightly to create the alphabet with your toes. Then you should repeat this process with your hands as well. Create a “T”, “U” and “V” with your hands. For instance, to create the “T” – you should raise your hands to the side, but without crossing the shoulder line. For “U” – start with your hands right over your elbow and press up above your head until your hands are fully extended. For “V” – you need to straighten your hands in front of your abdomen and lift them up above your ears.
“It’s harder than you’d think,” Debra Strougo, certified personal trainer and founder of boutique fitness concept Row House. “This is great for your fine motor skills, for your smaller muscles, for your mobility, and of course for your concentration.”
