The Hands Hammock Exercise

From all the thinking and paying attention your head can feel heavy. That’s why it’s good to leave your head to rest once in a while.

Always consult a therapist first, to determine if this low back exercise is good for you. If you don't have a therapist yet, please find one near you by using our therapist map

 

Stand up straight, fold your hands together and put them behind your head. 

 

Just relax your head in your hands, as if your hands are a hammock.

Now slowly and carefully press your head into your hands. Hold this for 4 seconds.

Repeat this exercise 3x.

 

 

Already done three exercises? Still not superflexible? How about another exercise!

 

Watch out:
Does it hurt or the exercise does not feel good? Then tell this to your parents and/or caretakers and stop the exercise.
