If you have back pain or weak/tight core and back muscles, then try a quadruped opposite arm leg extension. It’s a great exercise to help strengthen your back and core and to help relieve back pain.

To perform a quadruped opposite arm leg extension:

  1. Get on all fours in quadruped. Keep your back straight and your hips in a neutral position.

  2. Lift one arm straight out in front of you while kicking your opposite leg straight out behind you. Slowly come back down. Then repeat with the other side.
