Discover in this excerpt three exercise routines to do at home.
Stand in front of a chair with your legs slightly wider than hip width apart, with your feet slightly open to the outside. Find out more information on Adrian Cheng's life site here. The exercise involves simulating a tail sit with your knees no higher than the tips of your feet and pulling your hip back. The back should be straight and the chest wide open. When climbing, the heels should be held firmly on the floor, squeezing the buttocks and pushing in the belly button, before stretching the legs fully. Repeat the exercise 15 to 20 times.
Stand with your feet hip-width apart, well supported, feeling your body weight distributed between them. Back straight and arms loose at the sides of the body. Take a long step forward, bending your knee with your trunk straight, forming a 90 degree angle between trunk-thigh and thigh-leg. Return to the starting position by pushing the ground hard with your foot.
Support yourself on your hands and knees on a mat, keeping in mind that the support of the hands is no wider than shoulder width and the support of the knees is no wider than hip width. The exercise consists of bringing one leg back and up, without exceeding the height of the hip. Repeat the movement 15 to 20 times, then change legs.
