Exercise of The Week: Knee Hugs

Today’s stretch is what most call a “knee hug.” It stretches the muscles of the lumbar spine, buttocks, and hamstrings. When you do the stretch, you’ll feel it in your lower back. Please consult your provider before starting any new exercise regimen to avoid injury.

Laying on a flat surface, keep one leg completely flat, while pulling the opposite knee as close to your chest as possible. Hold this position for 10 seconds. Repeat with the other leg. Complete several rounds on each leg.

I remember my father completed this stretch often and swore it kept his back pain away!
