Ball Spine Stretch

Primary Muscle Group: Chest, shoulders and back

Muscle Groups Worked in This Exercise:

Preparation: Kneel on your shins and place both of your palms on the ball in front of you.

Breathing: Exhale as you extend and bend forward, inhale as you roll back to start.

Execution: As you extend your arms and bend forward, roll the ball forward until your upper body is nearly parallel to the floor. Stay in this position, allowing your shoulder blades to widen away from each other and your chest to open up. Hold this for 20-30 seconds and breathe normally. Rise and inhale.

Comments: Imagine you are stretching your entire body from your tailbone right up to the top of your head and fingertips. Doesn't that feel great?
