Split Squat & Extend
This is a great way to stretch your hips, quads and hamstrings. Start in the split lunge position, with your back knee slightly off the floor. Lift up through the chest raising your arms up then placing them down just outside the front foot. Pull your hips up and extend the front leg, lengthening through the back of both hamstrings. Repeat 6 times on each side or as needed for the stretch.
Side Plank Reach Throughs
Whittle your Middle! Setting up with your feet about hip – shoulder width apart and in a plank position from the hands. Shift from the side plank, reaching up and rotating into the forward facing one armed plank while reaching down and under your body. Take your time and work on the balance of the movement. Focus on getting a good stretch in your rear delts and middle traps as your arm reaches the top position.
