When my lower back is sore from running or sitting all day, a Low Squat is just what I need to stretch that area and get relief. Here's a deeper variation that will also open your hips.
For instructions on how to do this stretch read more.
- Sit on the floor on a mat, rug, or carpet.
- Bend your knees so they are slightly wider than your shoulders. Plant your feet slightly wider than your knees, with your toes pointing out to the sides.
- Lower your torso in between your knees and place your hands on the floor. If you're more flexible, place your forearms on the floor. Relax your shoulders away from your ears and try not to let your feet slip away from your body.
- Stay here for 30 seconds and then sit up to release.
Try it and tell me if you like it.
