  1. Excellent set of exercise. It is also helping me to get relief from my sciatic nerve pains

  2. How many reps per session? How often per week?

    • Even though this exercise can be ‘fatiguing’ in a way, it’s not a classic strengthening exercise based around muscle growth via classic fatigue and stress through reps, rest and multiple sets. I admittedly love this exercise for my body and what I think it needs. I may not succeed consistently but I do try to do this exercise or a few others that are similar once every day or as needed if I’ve been stooped over at the desk, in the yard or over a golf ball too long. My dachshund does something similar just instinctively everytime he wakes up. I guess that could be our guide 🙂

  3. Jeremy ,Wouldn’t it be better to do those exercises lying straight and flat on your back ,or better,on a foam roller ?

    • This exercise is about gaining postural muscle endurance which you won’t get by lying down, but I often times start on a foam roller to get my spine ready for this exercise.
