Superman Exercise For Low Back Pain


Here's your chance...!

The 'superman' exercise is a medium-intensity exercise that strengthens your lower back and trunk muscles by activating them as you lift your arms and legs off the floor.

The Superman exercise is also designed for lower back pain or for weak abdominals. 


How to Do the Superman Exercise

What we find far too often is that people are not be able to control their lumbar spine and they'll go into extension (arching their back) too much.

Train your tummy muscles to stay up nice and tight. 

The Superman exercise involves being on all fours and then slowly taking one arm and the opposite leg up and back.

With your tummy muscles on, you then need to take one leg out behind as far as comfortable, and the opposite arm out in front and then bring them back in and change it over other side.

You need to keep nice and tight through your back and tummy as your arms and legs go out in front. 

Do this exercise for twelve times on each side, two or three sets. 

Whether you are in the office or at home, you can easily and quickly do this exercise (if you don't mind looking a little 'funny' on the office floor!)
