Stretch it out daily like this: lie on your back with your right arm extended out perpendicular to the body. Bend both knees and cross the left leg over the right leg. Carefully drop the legs to the left as much as you can. You'll feel the stretch in your lower back muscles. Hold the stretch for about 20 to 30 seconds and repeat a couple of times. 0 More in Newsletters Want to improve your teenager’s eating habits?
