Spending long hours hunched over your desk? This exercise can help!

Superman Exercise
How to do a Superman stretch

Supermans are a fantastic stretch exercise and one our clients look forward to, as they provide a nice “active rest” exercise during circuits. Supermans strengthen your posterior chain, which includes:

  • lower back
  • glutes
  • hamstrings

How to do Supermans:

  1. Lay on your stomach, reaching your arms forward (like you’re Superman/flying).
  2. While looking forward and keeping your head straight, simultaneously (and gently) raise your legs and upper body off the floor.
  3. Hold for three seconds and repeat.

At HomeBodyFit, we use this move to help all our clients strengthening the posterior chain, which is particularly beneficial to clients who spend long hours working at a desk.
