|2||Slowly tuck the chin in and walk out allowing your upper body to drap over the ball.|
|3||Cup your head in your hands. Release your upper back, head and hips over the ball.|
|4||Exhale, sink into the hips, lowering them to the floor while maintaining your back on the ball.|
|5||Inhale push through the feet and move back over the ball into extension.|
- Some find this challenging for stability initially. If it doesn’t feel comfortable, switch to the Upper Back Opener with Foam Roller.
- To ensure you obtain a full stretch, make sure your hips and back stay connected to the ball. If this produces pain, stop the exercise and consult an exercise professional.
