Rising Stomach Stretch

Posted by Judith Winer on

 

 

Technique:

• Lie face down
• Bring your hands close to your shoulders
• Look forward
• Push your body upwards with your arms keeping your hips on the ground

 

Primary muscles: External and internal intercostals. External and internal obliques. Transversus abdominis. Rectus abdominis.

Secondary muscles: Psoas major and minor. Iliacus.

 

Injury where stretch may be useful: Abdominal muscle strain. Hip flexor strain. Iliopsoas tendonitis.

 

Note: For those who spend most of their day sitting, such as office workers or drivers, the muscles of the front of the body can become inflexible and extremely tight. When performing this stretch for the first time, use caution and rest between each repetition.
