The Crazy Arm-Balance That Sculpts Your Arms and Core

Aug 22 2014 - 5:34am

Make sure you bring your sense of humor to the mat for this pose, because if this is your first time giving it a try, you're probably going to fall over — a lot! Getting all bent out of shape (no pun intended) is not going to help. Go ahead and laugh at yourself, then get right back up and try again. This is the kind of pose where practice makes perfect because the more you try, the stronger and steadier you'll become, and that my friends, will land you in this pose like a champ. Follow this sequence on one side and then repeat on the other. When you reach the end of the sequence, if you're worried about face-planting into the hardwood floor, place a folded towel underneath you.
