Why does that matter? Twisting at the lower back is critical for everyday movements.

How do you do a scorpion stretch?
Bend your left knee toward your glute, then squeeze the muscle to raise your left leg straight up, keeping your knee bent. Bring your left leg across your body—if you’re able, try to touch the floor on the other side. Your torso will raise off the floor, but don’t let your hands move.
