Hey, I hope you are having a great weekend.

I had Andrea demonstrate.
#1 – Lie down on your Stomach
Lie down on your Stomach
Lying on your stomach is a low stress position, so it allows your back muscles to loosen up and decreases the pressure on your back. For probably 95% of people, lying on their stomach and extending slightly in the back helps. Lie down in this position for 30 seconds to 2 minutes, and see how your back feels.
#2 – Lie down on your Forearms
Lie down on your Forearms
Slowly move up on your forearms, slightly extending the lower back. Hold this for 10 to 15 seconds. Lie back down on your stomach and then do another extension. See what works best for you; 5-second, 10-second or 15-second hold.
#3 – Press Up
Place your hands just underneath the shoulders. Push up, arching at the back until your arms are straight, and then lower back down. Try to focus on arching your back and the rest of the body. You can straighten your arms out and back down if you are able to, but if you can only get half width, that’s perfectly fine. Go through 5 repetitions in a smooth controlled movement and hold the end position for a second. You can progress to 2 second holds and then back down. Start off with 5 repetitions then you can progress to 10 repetitions.
Give those three exercises a go to provide back pain relief!
