Back Exercises: 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 buttocks muscles to press your back upward. Let your head drop slightly.

  • Hold for  5 seconds. Return to starting position.

  • Repeat  5 times.
