Warmup for the Spine

Happy Tuesday!

This weeks flexibility exercise is a spine warmup.  This stretch helps get the entire body ready for any type of training or workout.  Try to exaggerate the curved spine as much as possible, engaging the abdominals and rounding the back.  The more you bend the knees the better.  As you stand tall again, try not to arch the back beyond your body’s natural curves.  Use the breath the entire time like always!

Enjoy and stretch carefully!
