Stretching Exercises for your Back

These back stretching exercises provided by Coach Don Holmes can help relieve back pain and are also great warmup stretches for gymnastics, dance, cheerleading and other sports.

Upper back stretching and lower back stretching relieves pain associated with certain muscle groups. Try these techniques gradually and get a good stretch to relieve knotted and achy muscles.

In this video, Coach Don talks about the reasons why you may have back pain. Coach Don starts with a good stretch that get you twisting and breathing in a way to stretch out your back.

He then works on the neck. He then shows the girls a great stretch you can do lying on your stomach. The main thing that Coach Don repeats quite often is that it is so important to breathe in and out slowly and allow the breath to help you stretch.

Stretching is so important for everyone. It keeps you flexible and helps to prevent injury, not only when doing sports but also just for everyday living.
