We enlisted a few top fitness pros to play the deserted island edition of fitness by asking them: “If you could only do one exercise for the rest of your life to stay fit, which exercise would you choose?” Some of the answers were surprising, but all were inspiring.
The trainer: Christine Bullock
The reason: For a healthy strong body, Bullock, the star of the “10 Minute Solution: Butt Lift” DVD, chooses vinyasa yoga’s Sun Salutation. “The series tones and strengthens the upper body, lower body, and core while flowing through the high and low push-up, and it stretches the front and back of body including decompressing the spine to prevent postural damage.”
The instructions: Each movement is done while inhaling or exhaling, flowing from one pose to the next.
