The Month of October is all about partner stretching! Stretching is more fun when done with someone, so grab a friend and get ready to do the Wide Legged Straddle.
The Wide Legged Straddle stretch primarily focuses on the back of the thighs and hips, as well as the back. You may need a folded blanket or towel for this one. If you have a hamstring, hip or low back injury, please do not perform this stretch.
How to perform:
*Please take note of the photo marked ‘No.’ Do not round out the spine, as this may increase strain to low back. Attempt to keep your legs straight unless it is too intense. In that case, a slight bend in your knees is okay.
