  1. Lie on your back. Keep your head on the floor.
  2. Gently pull both thighs close to your chest, and secure them there by wrapping your arms around knees. You can also wrap the arms at the back of your knees to reduce unnecessary tension on the knees.

  3. Exhale, pull knees toward shoulders allowing hips to be raised further off floor. You will feel gentle stretch at your lower back.
  4. Hold stretch for about 15 to 30 seconds.

    If you are having issues with your lower back flexability, I would also recommend purchasing a foam roller and using that after your workouts – great tool IME
