This 15-minute routine is designed to alleviate lower back pain. We stretch the calves, hamstrings, hip flexors, groin, glutes and piriformis and release tension throughout the body. It’s a great one to do after a workout to prevent morning stiffness and alleviate pain at the lower back.
Throughout the sequence, try to maintain a steady rhythm with your breath. If you’re holding your breath, your muscles will also hold onto tension. And try to think about releasing tension in tight muscles rather than on stretching away tightness. The aim is to exert as little force as possible. Relax and breathe into the stretch.
