Hello Team family! Praying you had a great Spring and Summer. I apologize for the hiatus but we are back here @ Training Tips! The following stretches are for everyone with lower body tightness / lumbar tightness. We especially have our athletes perform these stretches Pre and Post workouts to ensure proper mobility for optimal training/injury prevention.
The first stretch pictured below is the J-1, also known as a double leg pull back. This is great for hip flexor/quad tightness. J-2 is a combination stretch of “pull backs” 10x with a static hamstring hold for 30 sec. Perform this stretch bilaterally. J-3 is what we also call the “foot push” stretch. Fully extend one leg, place the opposite leg behind it and push it as far as possible for a hamstring stretch. The top leg should be relaxed in order to maximize the stretch. Again, perform this bilaterally. Finally, the J-4 is a double leg pull over stretch. Grab both your legs and pull them as far over your head as possible. All the above stretches should be performed 3-4x with a 30 sec hold on each bilaterally.
