Day 72: Seated Roll Up

To combat the ill effects of sitting for hours on end, this easy back exercise can help.
 
Step 1: Sit up tall in your chair with your feet on the ground, shoulder-width apart.
 
Step 2: Extend your arms in front of you and place them between your knees with the palms of your hands touching.
 
Step 3: Inhale and curl your chin to your chest.
 
Step 4: Roll down slowly moving your hands from your knees down to the floor, keeping your hands together.
 
Step 5: Reach out and forward and exhale as you roll your spine, one vertebrae at a time, up to the seated position.
 
Step 6: Repeat ten times.
