This is a weekly series on exercise that will give you the biggest bang for your exercise buck in and out of the gym. Today’s exercise is the Quadrupled Rockback Floor Press courtesy of Tony Gentilecore.

His cat makes a special appearance.

You should do this because– this moves works on your hip mobility and shoulder stability which are kind of important. Pushing your hands through the floor and bringing your shoulder blades apart helps keep your shoulders healthy and has posture benefits also.

Makes your everyday life easier because– If you spend your day sitting down, hunched over a computer or smartphone, this will help loosen your hips and reverse that quasimoto posture that may have developed throughout your day.

Form tips –  Keep your head up and keep your hands pressed through the floor through the entire movement. Do 10 reps daily. Cats are optional.
