Making Back Strong

Making your back strengthen will always help you keep a perfect balance of body and posture. You know that for doing every day activities, house chores, office work etc, strong back is always needed. If you look at America you will see that back pain is one of the most common problem in American people because our most of work is done in offices sitting all day in chairs. If you look at the statistics you will learn that every year we spent together 70 Million Dollars a year, which makes sense as most of us go to doctor for this pain. There are lots of different exercises which people do to strengthen the back and get relief from the back pain. I will tell you the two exercises which I do mostly but not daily and this has helped me a lot to get rid of back pain after sitting for long hours in chair. So here it goes.

1. Lying on the floor with bent knees.

For doing this exercise you need to be lying on the floor in such a position that your back is on the floor and it must be firmly pressed against the floor. Then bent your knees. Now after that start raising your left leg and bring it to your chest but at the same time you need to tighten your abdominal muscles. When you have brought your left leg to your chest hold it there for 10-12 seconds then reverse it,  after that do the same procedure with the right leg.

2. Stomach Against Floor Exercise 

You must have seen this exercise during yoga time on T.V, this one is the most favourite of mine, for this you need to lie on floor with your stomach touching against the floor. Make your arms straight out, like if you are diving in pool, same goes for legs, these should also straight out behind you. Now you have to make your self in "U" shape by raising your arms and legs at the same time. When you have fully stretched making your self in "U" shape. Hold there for 10-12-15 seconds ( which ever counter you like ), then come back to normal position, repeat the procedure again. This exercise should be done for at least 10-12 times, I do it when I go to office and before sleep time, gives me lots of relief. Try it you won't regret it.

I hope you will enjoy doing these exercises which I do :)
