Back Flex Exercise for Bone Health

Step 1

Stand near a table, desk, or dresser that is stable and has a strong hip-height surface.

Step 2

Back up to it.  You may place your hands on it to brace yourself.  Then gently lean back a few inches, until you feel your core engage.

Step 3

Then slowly return to the starting position to complete one repetition.  Repeat 9 more times to complete one set of 10 repetitions.

You’ve completed this one!  Great job!
