Lower Lumbar Rotation

This exercise aims to increase the flexibility of the lower lumbar muscles. The weight of the leg provides the stretch but it can be increased by using the hand.

Teaching Points

  • Lay flat on the back with both legs out straight.
  • Bring one knee up towards the chest.
  • Then take it across the body, trying to get the inner knee to touch the floor on the other side of the body.
  • The hand can be used to increase the rotation if necessary.
