How to Stretch Your Abs for Female Strength Training

Learn how to stretch your abs from personal trainer Erin Sharoni in this Howcast workout video.


Hey, my name is Erin, and I'm a former U.S. junior Olympics certified swim coach and personal trainer. And fitness is my passion. So, I cannot wait to share it with you guys.

All right. Now, if you've done any ab work or not, it's still a good idea to stretch your stomach. If you take Yoga, you've seen this: the cobra pose. Come down onto your stomach. Place your palms underneath your shoulders and just gently press up. Make sure that you're not crunching your lower back. So, if it hurts, come down a little bit lower, but you should feel a nice stretch down the front of your body.

Coming back from there, you can move straight into child's pose. All right. I think that's everyone's favorite stretch. It feels really good on the lats, and it's just nice and relaxing. You can go into the child's pose at any time. Those of you who take Yoga, you already know that.
