One Simple -- But Challenging -- Back Exercise

I have always been fairly flexible but I found this back exercise video at and the exercise was a bit of a challenge for me, primarily when I tried to do it to the left. (As a right-hander, that's my followthrough position.)

This is an exercise for the thoracic spine -- that's the middle part of your back -- and not only is it fairly simple, you only have to do one set of 12 reps on each side. Compared to most exercises, that really is simple! Here's the video:

Make sure you read the short article that accompanies the article. It not only gives you a good explanation of how this "T-spine exercise" can help you, but it also has some other potential moves that might help.

I'm going to try and incorporate this move into my own workouts this year. This seems to be a relatively easy way to improve flexibility... and while it challenged me, it didn't hurt. That's a big plus in my book. ;-)
