Back Press

Do this exercise on your hands and knees. Keep your knees under your hips and your hands under your shoulders. Keep your spine in a neutral position (not arched or sagging). Be sure to maintain your neck’s natural curve:

  • Tighten your stomach and buttock muscles to press your back upward. Let your head drop slightly.
  • Hold for 5 seconds. Return to starting position.
  • Repeat 5 times.

For your safety, check with your healthcare provider before starting an exercise program.
