She describes Lordosis as "something you could be born with or develop over time due to bad posture and habits. One of the other reasons could also be pregnancy." To deal with this condition Yasmin has presented a 3-step workout routine that will help improve back posture and strengthen the back muscles. The fitness trainer has advised her followers to repeat the exercises 2-3 times per day. Here are the steps you need to follow as per Yasmin's Instagram Reels video.
1. Articulated Bridge (6 Reps) - Lie supine with your knees bent. Tilt your pelvis and articulate your spine off the mat. Hold up for one second before slowly lowering the spine back on the floor.
2. 100 Prep (6 Reps) - Lie supine with your legs at tabletop with your fingers pointing towards the ceiling. Then lift your head, chest and shoulders off the mat as you lower your hands towards the mat. Return to the start position.
3. Toe Taps (6 Reps Each) - Lie supine with the legs at tabletop just like you did in the previous step. Keeping the 90-degree angle, lower one leg towards the floor. Tap your toes and return your leg back to the table top. Repeat this pattern with the other leg.
