Cobra pose definitely works the muscles in your back, especially when you don't use your hands to support your weight — as these guys are demonstrating. Doing back-strengthening exercises like this one is a great way to prevent back pain, but I'd lose the cake and opt for something less favorable. If I had this sugary treat in front of me, it would be incentive to give up instantly just for a taste. A bowl of spiders — now that's something to keep your face out of.
