Lower Back: Knee to Chest

Lie on your back on the floor. Keep your body relaxed, and your head and spinal chord aligned. Clasp your hands behind your right thigh and pull it towards your chest slowly. The motion should take about five seconds. Keep the opposite leg flat on the surface of the table. Maintain the position for 10 seconds. Switch legs and repeat for five sets of ten repetitions.
