Stretching should be an essential part of your workout routine since it can help prevent pain, boost recovery, and increase flexibility. If your fitness plan includes a lot of abs exercises and it’s missing a little something to be perfect, here are some amazing stretches you should add to your warm-up or cool-down.

Cobra Stretches

One of the most popular stretches on the market, you can perform this movement by laying down on your stomach and pushing your body upwards with your hands. You should look straight ahead and push your chest up while holding this position for 20-30 seconds.   

Lying Twist Stretches

To do a lying twist stretch, you should lie on your back with your arms stretched at the side and your legs straight. After assuming the starting position, lift your knee and cross one leg over the other by twisting your hips and spine, and repeat the exercise on the other side.

Cat-Cow Stretch

In addition to being great for your abdominal muscles, this exercise can also help strengthen your lower back. You’ll start it on your hands and knees, and perform the movement by tucking your head downward, arching your back, expanding your neck, and dropping your belly downwards to stretch your abs.
