SWISS BALL SPINE STRETCH

Building Your Back.

When the topic of back training comes up we usually think about doing exercises such as Chin-ups, Lat pull downs, barbell rowing, the deadlift and such. But I have learned that there is much more to Building the whole entire back; Much, Much more.

When training your back remember to think about your spine starting from the tip of your head to the tail bone (coccyx). We are very familiar on how to train for back development but most are not familiar on how to work the back from the tip of the head to the Coccyx.

After you complete your conventional back training session try doing some back bridging along with some kneeling back bends and bridging using a Swiss ball. You know, I never had any use for those ugly Swiss balls. I thought that they were nothing but a fitness fad that would disappear. But now there is a legitimate use for them. You can use one to do some back bridges.

The bridge not only helps in strengthening and developing the neck, it also helps in decompressing the spine. If you have trouble doing the neck bridge use the Swiss ball and balance your self with both your hands. The kneeling back bend helps in also strengthening the spine by decompression. Here is a run down of the exercises you should do after your regular back training. They are:

1) Swiss Ball Bridges

2) Neck bridges

3) Kneeling Back Bend

4) Kneeling back bend with hand support. (same as above)

Try these movements the next time you train your back. This will help keep the whole back flexible and will help lessen spasms as well.

Until Next Time,

God Bess.
