How to Do the Cobra Stretch for a Back Workout

Learn how to do the cobra from certified personal trainer Max Tapper in this home back workout for men video from Howcast.


Hi guys. This is Max Tapper again for Howcast. And today, I'm going to show you guys how to do a cobra stretch. All right. Now the cobra stretch is something that a lot of you guys normally do in yoga and classes like that. But it still has a huge, huge valuable effects for just the everyday person looking to strengthen their back and to loosen it up a little bit.

So I'm going to show you how to do that. Hands out to the side and what we're going to do is extend the arms up, lifting our body up in the air. At the same time, really, really tightening our abdominals. So you're going to get a nice abdominal stretch at the same time. And slow on the way back to that. And we do it again.

Now one of these is something we'll hold for about 10, 15, 20 seconds. And down. Back up again. Now that is the cobra stretch.
