2 of 7 | Drawing a bow and letting the arrow fly
Take a step to your left so your legs are
slightly more than hip-width apart. Bend your knees, lowering your hips into “horse
stance,” toes and knees aligned. Cross wrists in front of your chest, with your right
arm on the outside, hands in fists. Maintain “horse stance” and extend your
left arm in line with the shoulder, forefinger pointing up, thumb stretched back and
other fingers bent. at the same time, make a fist with the right hand and lift the right
arm to shoulder height as if drawing a bow; look at your left hand. Return to
starting position and repeat, alternating sides. Expands chest to stimulate lungs,
loosens up shoulders and arms, improves spine function and strengthens legs.
