Let's dive into the step-by-step guide for this quick and easy morning workout.
Start with a wide stance, point your toes forward, and keep your legs as straight as possible.
Hang your arms and let your lower back open up, relaxing your neck. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.
Shift side to side, reaching towards one side, keeping your leg straight, and feeling the stretch in your hamstring and lower back. Switch sides and repeat.
Spider Lunge Stretch with T-Frame
Bring one foot high to the outside of your hand, with the other knee resting on the ground.
Feel the stretch in your hip flexor and groin area.
Post on one arm and drop your forearm as close to the mat as you can, then open up your other arm as far back as possible into a T-frame.
Do this several times, then switch sides and repeat.
Get into a lunge position, keeping your hips neutral and glutes engaged.
Lean forward, then sit back onto your heel, straightening your front leg and reaching for the floor to stretch your hamstring.
Alternate between hip flexor and hamstring stretches several times, then switch sides and repeat.
Child's Pose to Cobra
Start on all fours and sit back onto your heels with straight arms, trying to touch your forehead to the mat.
Then, move forward, dropping your hips and looking up towards the ceiling.
Alternate between child's pose and cobra pose several times to finish up your mobility session.
