36 Muscle Stretch Fitness Exercises For a Perfect Workout Plans
#25 Lateral Flexion at the Wall
To affect your external obliques, keep your spine prolonged as you slowly push your hips outside. Do not perform this stretch if you have pain in your lower back.
#26 Supine Twist
This stretch will do your external obliques as well as your glutes. It is especially good for people who have sciatica pain and try to make it go away. Start by lying flat on your back and then bring one leg across your body. Start to gradually rotate your gaze and upper body in the opposite direction. It is significant that you use your breath to open up your rib cage and sacroiliac joint and hip area, hence not make too much pressure on the lower back. If this stretch is hard for you, you can also do as follow: stack both of your knees on top of each other, and feel the stretch on the upper spine when you have your knees higher.
Keep on working your external obliques with the next exercises!
