A sore, tight back is no joke. And the way we live our lives — hunched over a computer, slouching on a couch, or sleeping wrong in bed — can certainly lead to tightness in your back. Even if you work out and stretch regularly, you may not be paying enough attention to your back.
Luckily, NASM-certified personal trainer Sydney Cummings has a 20-minute stretching sequence aimed at relieving tightness in your back. All you need is some space to lie down and stretch out your arms and legs, and a yoga mat if you need some support. She'll walk you through moves such as Cat Cow, Child's Pose, and Downward Facing Dog. This is the perfect stretching sequence to start your day off to get some movement, or to wind down before bed. Make sure you give your back a little TLC and do this stretching routine to loosen up.
