This exercise stretches the abdominal muscles and joints of the back to reduce the lower back pain and fatigue.
This exercise first involves standing which takes the strain off the discs in your back then, arching bakwards to reverse the position you have your back in when seated.

Caution :
Do not perform the exercise jerkily, do it smoothly, carefully, and within the comfort zone.
Do not hold the arched back position , return immediately to upright.As you return to upright, do not swing forward past vertical as this negates the effect of the exercise.

It has the following steps :

Standing up straight with feet slightly apart, place your hands in the hollow of your back.

Focus your eyes on a point straight ahead so that you will not feel dizzy.

Now, bend backwards over your hands without bending your knees.Again straighten up, do not hold the backward bending position.

Repea this for 10 times.
