The spine curl is one of my absolute favourites to include as part of a rehab programme and to practise just to keeping the back moving. It's a fantastic exercise for people looking to reduce stiffness in their spine. It's great for reducing anterior pelvic tilt and building strength in the hamstrings and abdominals.
The Spine curl is a good addition to strengthening and conditioning workouts for runners, cyclists and sports requiring a stable centre of gravity and strong core.
Spine curls work to mobilise and lengthen the spine - you get a lovely stretch through the lumbar spine especially if you can focus on lowering the spine sequentially. It's also a really great exercise for strengthening the core, glutes and hamstrings.
