Lower Back: Arm Lifts

This is a relaxing exercise that will have results for your whole back. Lie on your belly on a mat. Keep your nose to the floor, with your head aligned with your back and hips. Stretch your arms over head and slightly out to the side. Keep your thumb pointed upward. Bring this arm down and repeat the motion with the other arm. Raise and lower your arm slowly. Lift one arm, with your hand positioned so that the thumb points upward. Keep the rest of your body relaxed. Do five sets of ten repetitions.
