Cat-Camel

Picture of how to do the cat-camel exercise
  • Get down on your hands and knees on the floor.
  • Relax your head, and allow it to droop.
  • Round your back up toward the ceiling until you feel a nice stretch in your upper, middle, and lower back.
  • Hold this stretch for as long as it feels comfortable, or about 15 to 30 seconds.
  • Return to the starting position with a flat back while you are on all fours.
  • Let your back sway by pressing your stomach toward the floor. Lift your buttocks toward the ceiling.
  • Hold this position for 15 to 30 seconds.
  • Repeat 2 to 4 times.
