Stacie Carr Using the Stretch Machine
Lower Back Stretch

The stretch machine is used to maintain your flexibility. It not only helps to keep you limber, but also prevents injury during exercise. I always do back stretches after each of my heaving lifting sets, to help prevent recurrence of back problems I have experienced in the past.

Platinum Fitness has a Precor 240i StretchTrainer, which is specially designed to allow you to stetch your muscles while seated. It is provides good back support, while you use your own weight to stretch one of 8 major muscle groups: 1) Lower back, 2) Hamstrings, 3) Glutes/hips, 4) Hips/legs/back, 5) Inner thighs/groin, 6) Upper back, 7) Shoulders, and 8) Quads.

Read the instructions on the machine first, and watch the video below for a demonstration of two of the exercises.     ~ The Professor
