Boat

A tried-and-true pose to target the abs and increase hamstring flexibility, Boat pose is the perfect complement to running.

  • From Butterfly, inhale to lift the legs and extend them in the air in front of you to make a V shape with your body. If it's too difficult to keep the legs straight, bend the knees.
  • Keeping the spine long and the chest lifted, hold for five complete breaths.
