The Whale Therapeutic Back Bench

We just added the Therapeutic Whale Back Bench to our line of fitness equipment. Aside from being a beautifully built piece of furniture this back bench feels incredibly to stretch out on. Many of us have office jobs these days and spend hours sitting in front of a computer screen. The problem with this is that by spending all this time sitting down our backs naturally begin to hunch forward and stiffen up. This leads to both upper and lower back pain over time. The Whale therapeutic back bench is designed to help naturally and gently counter this effect,  improve flexibility and improve overall back fitness.

OmGym Inversion Exercise Chest Opener

01

This inversion exercise is a great way to stretch out the chest abdomen and lower back. Before doing this exercise make sure you are completely comfortable with doing the omgym full inversion.

OmGym Chest Opener

Start by getting yourself into the full inversion position. Then reach up and grasp the middle handle grips. While holding the grips push your hips forward at the same time arching your back and tilting your head back so that your body forms a bow shape. Inhale deeply and exhale completely. Hold this pose as long as is comfortable and when ready simply relax the arch in your back returning to full inversion then exit your full inversion.
