Abs Stretching Exercise 3
Please read our guidelines section before attempting any of our stretching exercises.
EQUIPMENT NEEDED – A fitness ball.
You can find some very useful information about the abdominal muscles here.
Technique – Start by sitting down on the fitness ball in an area that will provide enough space to perform the exercise. Move forwards slightly on the ball so that your lower back is well supported. Position your feet shoulder width apart with your legs in an L-shape position. Place your hands behind your head interlacing your fingers together and start the exercise once you have found your balance. Lean backwards over the fitness ball keeping your hips and legs up and solid. As you lean backwards you will feel your abs muscles begin to stretch. Hold this position for a count of 5. Lean forwards to relieve pressure on the abs muscles and repeat this technique until your abdominal muscles are fully stretched.
