Stretches to increase Back Flexibility?

by admin on January 16, 2010

I’m trying out for my college cheer squad in august and i am going to be a flyer… i have all my splits but my back flexibility sucks and makes it hard to do scales and scorpians…. how can i get them in time for tryouts?

Hi there

Basic exercises i use are as follows

1. Bending down and touching the toes done both standing and seated.
2. Performing the crab position
3. Hip rotations. This also exercises the spine as well.

Dont forget to strengthen the supporting muscles that work with your spine. This will result in less injuries.

I have a dodgy back see! ;-)

Best wishes
