Static Stretches for Your Core

The next three exercises are static stretches that help increase your range of motion throughout your core. Stretching the abdominals protects the back and prevents injury and vice versa.

With static stretches for your core (and for any other stretch for that matter), take the time to slow down and focus on holding the stretch because it strengthens the muscles you're working.

Pilates is a great example of static stretching because it involves holding a series of movements as you slow down and focus your breathing on each exercise. Check out Pilates For Dummies by Ellie Herman (Wiley) for some great workouts with static stretches.
