Stretching the torso and spinal column
(1) Starting position
(2) Slowly curl your back upwards like a cat
(1) Get down on all fours and make sure that your fingertips are pointing forward and that you're palms are directly below your shoulders with outstretched arms. Now straighten your back as much as you can. The works best if you flex your abdominal muscles somewhat. (2) Gradually curl your back into a hump like a cat. Count to 30 while maintaining this position. Then slowly return to the straight-backed starting position.
