Looking for an easy way to loosen up after a long day at your desk? A cat-camel stretch is just the ticket. Don’t worry — you got this.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
Get into position
Get down onto your hands and knees. Place your palms directly under your shoulders and your knees underneath your hips. Make sure to keep your back straight; you should look like a tabletop.
Round your back
Relax your head and allow it to drop down. Round your back up towards the ceiling until you feel a comfortable stretch. Breathe out and hold here for 15 seconds.
Straighten your back
Return to a flat spine.
Sway your back
As you breathe in, allow your back to sway, press your stomach towards the floor and lift your buttocks toward the ceiling. Allow your head to tilt back slightly.
Repeat this sequence for 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Don’t forget to breathe and keep your belly button pulled into your spine the whole time.
