Cobra Stretch

The Cobra Stretch is part of the Performance plus Stretching Series. Its a really useful stretch to loosen the lower back and pelvis. Start position is lying face down on the floor in the prone position as if ready to start a push up but keeping the hip and legs in contact with the floor.
 From the prone position, gently press up using the arms and shoulders keeping the legs, pelvis, and lower abdomen in contact with the floor. Perform the exercise in a slowly to the end of the movement range and then pause briefly, rather than holding as if performing a traditional static stretch. Repeat 10 times
