IT Band & Side Stretch

HI Everyone,

Happy Tuesday!!! This week we are focusing on the side of the body.  This flexibility exercise, stretches the entire side of the body.  It’s a great IT band stretch as well as facial stretch.  If the position is uncomfortable for the ankle come onto the ball of the foot instead.  Focus on keeping the hips pushed forward and the abdominals engaged.  Like always, use the breath the entire movement.

Enjoy & stretch carefully!

Hamstring stretch seated

Hi Everyone!

Happy Tuesday! This weeks exercise is a static hamstring stretch.  Focus is on keeping the back straight and using the breath to relax into the position.  You always have the option to keep the knee bent if the stretch is too intense.  Try leaning forward and outwards as opposed to collapsing down over the leg.  Make sure to tune in every Tuesday for a new stretching video!

Enjoy & stretch carefully!

Forearm stretch

Hi Peeps,

This weeks stretch is for the forearms.  This looks like an easy stretch but can be very intense for anyone who has tight arm muscles.  The elbows only need to be straight enough to feel the stretch.  Allow yourself to relax back as far as your body will allow.  Remember to keep the breath the entire exercise.  Tune in every Tuesday for a different stretching video on Sarah’s 60 Second Stretch!

Enjoy & stretch carefully!

Hip Stretch, improve hip flexibility

HI Everyone!  

This week we are targeting the hip flexors and gluteus muscles.  This is a great exercise to help improve hip flexibility.  The taller you sit, the more you will feel the front line of the body being stretched.  Some may find it cramps their back muscles – in that case lower the upper body down until you can find a comfortable position.  

Enjoy & stretch carefully!
