Category Archive: Weekly Stretch
Welcome back for another month of weekly stretches! This month we are stretching our inner thighs, and the first week we will be performing the Side Angle Stretch. You will feel the stretch from your groin muscles to your inner knee muscles, as well as in the side of your body from your hip to your armpit.
For the last week of October we will be performing a Partner Twist Stretch. This movement will stretch your outside hip muscles and also the lower back to mid back muscles.
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.
Our second week of partner stretching is an Assisted Side Angle Stretch. You will feel this stretch in the sides of your body, but it also has a slight twist that will stretch your back. Since this stretch mimics a side lunge, it will stretch your inner thighs too!
Welcome to my favorite season, Fall! Since Sweetest Day is in October, I thought it would be fun to do a month of partner stretches. So grab the sweetest person in your life for the next few weeks of fun!
As we get ready to kickoff week four of the NFL season, fantasy football players should be paying attention to the injuries that are putting starters on the bench and backups on the field.
We will be performing the Triangle Pose for our last week of our sink stretches. This one is taken from yoga and will stretch the sides of your body and possibly your hamstrings.
For the third week of September, we will be performing the Reverse Plank Stretch. This movement will stretch your chest, biceps and some front torso muscles.
For the second week of September we will be performing the Squat with Kitchen Sink Stretch. This stretch will give you some traction through your spine and the sides of your body. It will also stretch your low back and into the outsides of your hips.
Welcome to September’s weekly stretch blog. In the three years since this blog started, we have done most every stretch imaginable. This includes everything but the kitchen sink – until now. That’s right, this month’s stretches will focus on using the kitchen sink! Why you might ask? The kitchen sink provides stability, as well as traction for these stretches. Using props is a great way to facilitate optimal stretch!
