Gymnastics Tips and How-to's



Sideways Bend


As the name implies, you will perform this exercise by bending sideways. This exercise helps in increasing the range and maintains mobility of the joints of the spine.

Sideways bend also helps in stretching some of the oblique abdominal muscles which are at the side of the waist. These muscles are important for a trim waist line and in providing support for your back when lifting. This support helps to prevent lower back pain and injury.

Steps for doing :

  • Stand up straight with the arms down by your sides.
  • By standing straight, bend sideways so your right arm goes down your right leg as far as is comfortable.
  • You should feel the stretch along your left side.
  • Then again return back to the upright position.
  • Repeat this for 5 times on both the sides.
