Deeper Backbends

Backbends increase spinal mobility as well as opening up the hips and chest—making them incredibly beneficial for riders. Take them slow.

In this sequence, we’ll progress to some more advanced backbends. Please be super cautious—taking the modified version of any pose that feels uncomfortable.

PRIMARY MUSCLES STRETCHED

  • Hip flexors.
  • Abs, chest and fronts of the shoulders.

KEY POSES

EQUIPMENT

  • Mat

TIMING

  • You need to be pretty well warmed up for this video, so after a workout would be the best time.

TIP

Camel and Rabbit are both advanced poses that require extra caution. Please skip this routine if you have any concerns about your lower back health.
