Fit Tip: Stretch Back on Stability Ball

Incorporating stretching into your daily workout routine is essential as it can increase flexibility, range of motion, and can prevent and relieve pain. The stability ball is a great tool and one of my favorite props to use for both strengthening and stretching. Try stretching your back on the ball following these simple steps:

1 — Start by sitting on the ball and walk your feet forward, keeping the knees bent until the ball is under your back with your shoulders and head supported.

2 — Lying back on the ball, keep arms by your sides and knees bent about hip width part or extend arms back and straighten the legs for a deeper stretch (as pictured above).

3 — Hold the stretch for 20-30sec and repeat 2x.
