Follow these workouts for a better looking back in no-time, minus the pain.
This easy workout will reduce any strain on your arms and back, but also helps to realign your hips and spine. Just remember to give your body a good stretch before starting out.
Start on your hands and knees, then lift your head and make sure your back is concave. Get back into the cat position by tucking in your tailbone and extending your head upwards on the exhale.
Lie down on your back with feet firmly on the floor. Naturally, your back will rise upwards, and this is the best way to keep your arms and palms flat on the floor.
