it sounds like your good with stretching, but how long do you hold the stretches? and here are some good strengthening exercises:
push-ups: start with maybe 3 sets of 5 or 10. then work your way up
v-ups: again, probably 3 sets. start and stay at around 15-25, but increase if you need a challenge
hollow and arch or "superman" holds and rocks: start with 2-3 sets of 20-30 seconds on each and 20-30 or more of hollow and arch rocks
step ups: if you can find a solid surface that is stable and about a little above your knees do 20-10-5 or 25-20-15-10-5 whichever you can step ups
anything else you can pm me or just repost in this thread hope this helps:D
