Simple exercise for back pain, toned abs, & better posture

What you do is--
Lie on your stomach with your toes on the ground and your chin rested on the ground, arms extended forwards.
Take a good breathe and out stretch your arms up and forward.
Stretch your legs up and stretch them backwards as far as they can go. Legs will be off the ground but not too high.
Keep focusing on your breathing. If you feel like you want to lift higher instead see if you can just stretch further and not up.
Hold for 60 seconds
Enjoy

Back pain can come from many different areas of the back and is often referred pain felt in the back but caused by the hamstrings or other areas.

Because of that, the best and most specific exercises are as individual as the complain itself.

It is best to get the opinion of a health profession as to what exercises will be most beneficial and equally important, which should be avoided until the problem has improved.

I've seen this called the "Superman Stretch" on the Darebee exercise site. It's a good one. But Espresso is right, be careful if you have an injury or chronic back problems.

Hello

Thread is closed .

While this is a good exercise for some it could cause more harm than good. Its always best to consult your Dr. or medical therapist for the best exercise for your body and body type.



Dangerous Practices and Medical Advice: For the safety of our members, the discussion of any practice which may be extremely detrimental to mind, body, or spirit is not permitted. This includes practices such as fasting for long periods of time, sun gazing, taking substances that can harm ones health, etc. Comments that could discourage a member from visiting their doctor or from following their doctor's advice or prescriptions also fall under this. Posts that the staff deem as violations of this rule will be removed or edited and repeating this conduct will result in warnings and possible Disciplinary Action.
