Segmental rotation is another way to boost core strength:

  • Lie on your back with your knees bent and your back in a neutral position. Tighten your abdominal muscles.
  • Keeping your shoulders on the floor, let your knees fall slowly to the left (A). Go only as far as is comfortable. You should feel a stretch, but not pain. Hold for three deep breaths.
  • Return to the start position. Repeat the exercise to the right (B).
