Cat Camel

The Cat Camel is an underrated upper-body and core exercise. If you're into Yoga, you're probably familiar with it. Grab a gym or camping mat and start with the "camel" position with your hands and knees on the floor (your butt should be slightly up). Then you want to assume the "cat" position: round your back as high as you can with your head looking downwards; aim for 10-20 seconds (that's one rep). Do 3 or 4 sets of 6-8 reps. This exercise works your back, core, shoulders and pectorals, not bad!

Pros:
  • Works many core and upper-body muscles.
Cons:
  •  You need a gym or camping mat (or any soft surface), otherwise your knees will suffer. 

1/Camel position: keep your butt up.










2/Cat position: round your back, head down.
