Round your back up toward the ceiling until you feel a nice stretch in your upper, middle, and lower back.
Hold this stretch for as long as it feels comfortable, or about 15 to 30 seconds.
Return to the starting position with a flat back while you are on all fours.
Let your back sway by pressing your stomach toward the floor. Lift your buttocks toward the ceiling.
Hold this position for 15 to 30 seconds.
Repeat 2 to 4 times.
