1# Kneeling Quad Stretch

Start this by sitting on the mat with bending knees and then start lunging with your back knee, shin and foot on the floor. Now lift your back foot off the floor and start stretching it towards your butt area. You need to keep your back and torso straight and your whole body will rest on one bending leg that is on floor. Pull as much as you can without any pain. Feel more stretch and when you reach your maximum limit of stretching then stop and come back to a normal position. Change the side and then repeat with next leg.

2# Hamstring Stretch

Hamstring stretch helps in strengthening the back, hip and thigh muscles

Instead of stretching both the hamstrings at the same time try stretching one at a time to give rest to the other. You need to lie straight on your back on the mat and then start by grabbing one leg by the thigh and then pulling it straight towards your chest till you start feeling a good stretch in it. Keep stretching for 2 minutes and then switch the same to next leg. Repeat this 5 times and keeps inhaling and exhaling at the same time. This will strengthen your thighs, legs and back muscles as well.

3# Hip Stretch

Sit straight on the ground and push your hands behind and keep them on the floor for support. Now, bend your knees and then spread your feet on the ground as much as you can by keeping your heels touched to the ground. Lower your knees to the left and twist your body to left as well. Lower your knees to the left so that outside of left knee and inside of right knee are pressed into the ground. Lean forward towards the left side of your body and then switch to the other side and repeat the same to your right side. Do this for 5 sets on regular basis and this will strengthen your back and hip area.

4# Lunge And Twist

This gives a good strength to your hip area and improves flexibility of your body

Do the twisting exercises that are good for your spine and do not give much pressure to your spine. Standing and twisting your spine can prove to be dangerous sometimes as a sudden jerk can lead to a lot of problems. Do lunge and twist as this gives a good stretch to your hip area and saves your spine from too much of motion. Take a large step forward with any of your foot and bend your knee to a right angle that forms a 90 degree angle. Keep your left hand on the ground and outside of your left foot. Reach your right hand up and slowly turn your shoulders and your head along with your arms. Repeat this with the other side and do 5 sets

5# Standing Wall Slide

While sitting for longer hours on the chair, your shoulders get a slump and the posture goes for a toss. Do standing wall slide to keep your back straight and in shape. Stand or sit straight in the front of a wall so that your spine remains straight and your shoulders and arms are pressed against the wall. Lift your arms and press them back against the wall with your elbows bent at 90 degrees. Do not lift your back and slide your arms as high as you can and keep your shoulders and head pushed to the wall. Then pull your arms back down and repeat this 3-4 times daily.

6# Puppy Pose With Twist
