25 Best Exercises For People Over 40

15. Reverse Tabletop

This is one exercise that will open up and stretch your upper body and at the same time make your back stronger. Performing this exercise regularly will ensure that you don’t develop the hunchback look as you age.

How do you perform this exercise?

Sit keeping the knees bent, palms behind your body with fingertips pointing at your butt, and feet flat on the ground. Inhale and press your feet and hands gently for lifting your hips off the ground. Extend the hips in the direction of the ceiling. Now, exhale and bring the shoulder blades close to each other. This would open up your chest. Next, lower the head back carefully and tilt the chin up. Stay in this position for 15-30 seconds. You should perform two to four repetitions of the exercise.
