Thanksgiving week’s stretch of the week is called the Figure 4 Foam Rolling stretch, which is a hip stretch that also massages the piriformis and gluteal muscles along the backside of the hip. Plus, you may also feel a stretch through the chest.
As with the other stretches in November, you will need a foam roller to perform this stretch. Please do not perform if you have difficulty getting up and down from the floor, or if you have any hip injuries.
How to perform:
*Take a look at the “No” photo. It’s unsafe to have both hands on the roller as you may fall off. It’s also very difficult to roll this way. The chest is collapsed and the gaze is down as well.
We hope you enjoy this time with your friends and family! Encourage them to join in on the stretching fun!
