Back and abs stretch

The back and abs stretch warm-up is a great exercise to do before attempting heavier abdominal and back exercises. It’s important not to do this warm-up if you already suffer from back or abdominal pain.

Step 1. Kneel on the floor, position both hands flat on the floor, under your shoulders. Tuck your toes under.

Step 2. Lower your hips and waist to the floor, elevate your stomach, chest and neck upwards to create a curve with your spine to stretch through your abdominals and increase mobility in your spine.
