A Great Stretch after a Long Day

April 19, 2010 at 1:49 am Leave a comment

This is a stretch that can be done after your workouts to relax the entire body and give a gentle stretch to many body parts such as: hips, thighs, and ankles. It is also a great stretch to do at the end of a long work day to help relieve stress and fatigue, giving you a moment to calm your mind from racing thoughts of the events that occurred throughout the day or your long “to do” list. Do not perform this stretch if you are pregnant, or suffer from knee injuries.

How to:

Step 1: Kneel and sit on your feet with your heels pointing outward. Separate your knees about the width of your hips or shoulders.

Step 2: Place your forehead on the floor, swinging your arms forward.

Step 3: Resting your forehead on the floor, bring your arms around to your sides with your palms facing upward.

Tip: If you find it difficult to sit on your feet and have your forehead rest on the floor in comfort, try putting a thickly folded towel between the back of your thighs and calves to rest more comfortably.
