How to do it: Start lying face down on the floor (or on a mat) with your legs extended straight out behind you. Bend your elbows and place your hands, palms facing down, in front of your shoulders. Press your body away from the floor, lifting from your lower back up through your shoulders, keeping your elbows slightly bent. At the top of your extension, tilt your head back, and looking up towards the ceiling. Hold at the top, take a deep breath, and release back to the mat. Repeat 8 times.
How it will heat things up: Cobra strengthens the long muscles of the back and those between the shoulder blades, and it brings flexibility to the thoracic area, which stiffens with age, Anderson says. "A strong back and a flexible chest enhance sexual movement and various positions."
