    Pelvic tilts are great for strengthening your lower back muscles which reach around to the abdomen. Also much less stressful on the back than situps if you have back pain or disk disease.

    Use of elastic resistance bands with proper technique.  You can find videos on YouTube.

    I found a good one on you tube also that has you work with different types of softer equipment, such as rolled tubes. I also just bend over and grab my ankles, and gently, very gently pull  on my ankles (as if you are trying to pull yourself off the floor).  I do this about 3X with 10 pulls per rep. It really does help to stretch those back muscles.

    A good back strengthening exercise can be done over a gym ball. Position the ball under your hips, so that you are facing the floor make sure you are close enough to a wall so that you can brace your feet against the wall.
    Use your back muscles and core muscles to lower your upper body towards the floor bending at the hips and then lift your upper body back up, taking care not to strain your back on the lift up. This exercise will work both your back and core muscles.

    I forgot what they are called but some pilates exercises/stretches work pretty good or some exercises from the Wii game fit in six work good too!
