Posture Exercise: The Ball Hug
StrongPosture® Forward Stretch (lengthens and stretches tight spinal muscles)
Kneel in front of the posture ball.
Slowly, with controlled motion, roll forward on the ball, letting the ball support your entire weight. Keep your hands on the floor for balance only. Gently roll forward on the ball until you are on your toes, and then slowly roll back until your knees are on the floor again. Repeat several times. Do not strain the low back and only come as far forward as you feel comfortable. Remember to take slow deep breaths as you stretch and relax.
Always consult your doctor before participating in any exercise program. All posture exercises should be performed pain free. If you experience pain or discomfort, stop the exercise and consult your physician.
