Cat/Cow Exercise Videos

The cat-cow exercise lengthens your spine and strengthens your entire back.

To do this exercise, start on all fours. Your hips should be over your knees, your shoulders over your wrists.

For some of you, it will feel easier to have your wrists forward just a little bit.

We want this position to be comfortable.

Inhale and relax. As you exhale, tighten your abdominal muscles and round the spine as the navel comes toward it. Arch your back and drop your head. Inhale and bring your head up, drop your upper back and return to the neutral, or middle, position.

Repeat this exercise five to 10 times. You should do this exercise one to two times per day.
