Tight Abdominals can be caused by a lot of anterior (front of the body) exercise and conventional sit-ups, and can contribute to back pain and postural misalignment tightness.

This stretch will easily open up the chest and lengthen the abdominals to their normal length and this is easy to maintain for an amount of time if you need to.

To increase the stretch, you could do this stretch over a Swiss-ball, extending your arms overhead will give you a more beneficial stretch
