Cobra stretch

Estiramiento de abdominales el tronco en extensión


Lie on the floor face down and place your hands slightly wider than shoulder width apart while holding your torso up at arms length. Support your weight on your toes and hands. Keep the shoulders far from the ears retracting your shoulder blades. Contract your pelvic floor and core while keep your body straight.


Start lowering your hips without bending your elbows until you feel the stretch in your abdominal muscles. Exhale during the movement. Make sure your shoulder blades are always retracted. Hold the position during the required time.

TIPS: The exercise key is quality over quantity. The trick is to perform the exercise using proper form. You can point with your fingers back for a more intense stretch.
