The standing side stretch is a popular beginner stretch that is often used in yoga. It is a great stretch for targeting back muscles, the obliques, and muscles throughout your core.
Step By Step Instructions
Stand with feet slightly wider than hip-width apart, raise arms overhead and grab your left wrist with your right hand. While holding your wrist, slightly bend toward the right, focusing on engaging the side abdominals, oblique muscles, and sticking your left hip out. Hold for 30-60 seconds and repeat on the other side.
