As we approach Sweetest Day (on the 21st), this is a great week to grab your favorite stretching partner and perform the Assisted Easy Seated Stretch! But first, warm up by trying October’s first two stretches. Doing so will help to prepare both partner’s hips for this week’s stretch.
The Assisted Easy Seated Stretch will stretch your hips, inner thighs and back muscles. Please skip this week if you have difficulty getting up and down from the floor, or if you have any knee or low back injuries.
How to perform:
Tip: lead with the chest when folding. This will keep the low back in a safe position. You don’t want to look like the “No” photo, as this will put too much strain on the low back.
