It’s Tuesday Peeps!
Here is a stranding static chest stretch that is great to do after a workout. This can be a great stretch for the pectoralis muscles. A few things to keep in mind while performing this stretch:
1. Keep the knees slightly bent. It’s a bit of a workout for the quads (but really whose complaining about that …we do it to protect the back. When you bend your knees the effort switches to the legs and takes the pressure off the back muscles.
2. As you press the hands towards the ground, imagine bringing the shoulder blades closer together… this will help “open up the chest” a little more
3. As you arch back slightly imagine you’re lifting up and back. Reach the tip of the head towards the ceiling (or sky in my case) then allow yourself to arch the back a little. We want to keep lengthening the spine even during the arch.
Filming this in Montreal in November… if I look cold… I AM!!!!! Hahaha
Enjoy & Stretch carefully,
