Forward-bend exercise

This exercise stretches and strengthens your back muscles.

  • Sit comfortably in a chair, and relax your arms.
  • Slowly bend forward, allowing your arms to hang down in front of you. Lean only as far as you can without feeling discomfort or pressure on your belly.
  • Hold for 15 to 30 seconds and then slowly sit up straight.
  • Repeat 2 to 4 times or to your comfort level.
