The cat camel is a basic warm-up stretch that strengthens the core, lower back, and hips.
Kneel down on all fours with your hands directly underneath your shoulders and your knees underneath your hips. Round your upper back while pressing your shoulders forward while looking down. This is your starting or cat position.
Pause, then slightly arch your back while looking up towards the ceiling. Return to starting position.
Avoid moving too quickly through the movement. Focus on moving in a slow and controlled manner.
Be sure to pull your abs in tight to brace your core throughout the exercise.
