Developing Arm and Core Strength

Simon Borg Olivier

Arm balancing postures and positions such as the Cataranga Dandasana (the push-up) can be very exhilarating. They can energise you by increasing your circulation and they are also good at developing chest, arm and core strength. When done correctly they can really help relieve and prevent back and neck pain and can give direct stimulation to the heart and lungs.

L5-S1 is usually located about 2 centimetres below the top of your hips (iliac crests).
