Ed Jackowski of Exude Fitness show us, in under five minutes, how to save ourselves a lot of pain and discomfort!
Legs Apart – Hamstrings Stretch:
Sit on the floor or bed with your legs as far apart as possible. Bend forward as far as you can, moving your hands, palm down, towards your ankles. Grasp your ankles (or the top of your socks) and gently pull your upper body into a comfortable stretch – and hold.
Legs Together – Hamstrings Stretch:
Remain seated and extend your legs straight in front of you. Gently, bend forward from the hips and reach towards your toes and hold. You can hold this stretch holding your toes, or grab on to your socks.
Tips of the Week:
1. The wonderful thing about proper exercise is that after one year of exercising, the body reacts as if it has been exercising its entire life!
2. What’s the most important factor to becoming & staying fit? Consistency is the most important factor in becoming fit. Organize yourself to make time.
3. If you’re looking to reduce size down below, beware; for certain body types, spinning, step classes and stair climbers can actually increase the size of your buttocks, thighs, and hips.
