How do I stretch my abdominals?

A great stretch for the abs is the stability ball abdominal stretch. Perform the stretch by following the technique described below. Begin by laying face up on a stability ball. Ensure that you place your lower, mid, and upper back entirely on the ball. Next, drape your body over the ball and extend the legs and arms until a stretch is felt in the belly area. Hold the stretch for 30 seconds and repeat as necessary.
