Back Exercises: Back Press

Woman on all fours, arching back.

Do this exercise on your hands and knees. Keep your knees under your hips and your hands under your shoulders. Keep your spine in a neutral position (not arched or sagging). Be sure to maintain your neck’s natural curve:

  • Tighten your stomach and buttocks muscles to press your back upward. Let your head drop slightly.

  • Hold for  5 seconds. Return to starting position.

  • Repeat  5 times.
