Back Pain Relief #2 - The Locust

This is the 3rd back pain relief which style resembles the locust that's why it's called that name. This is different from the other two exercises - the cobra and the snake.

1. Lie on your stomach, hands by your side, palms up.

2. Raise your head and place the front of your chin only on the floor.

3. Make fists of your hands and place them under your thighs in your groin.

4. Inhale, stiffen the body and push down on your arms. Bring your legs up in the back as high as they will go.

5. Hold this pose for 15 seconds, or as long as you can while holding your breath.

Exhale and lower your legs. Relax and repeat the exercise as often as you wish.

Perform this and the other two exercises on a regular basis once or twice a day and expect a good change in your back strength and a decrease in your back pain. Actually I'm prone to back pain and aside from sharing this tip I'm also a recipient of this one, I'll do this also.
