At Home Stretching Tutorial (Pictures and Video)

Stretching is important towards recovery, it complements a training program by allowing your body to rebuild itself and become strong over time.

That is why I recommend stretching before and after every workout. Knowing that this is a time-consuming process, I have chosen easy poses that you can perform before every strength training session.

Use the form as is displayed in the images.

Forward Fold (Hold for 30 seconds)

Lean forward from your hips and not your lower back to release the tension in your lower body.

Pigeon stretch (Hold for 30 seconds on each side)

I am demonstrating the pose in this picture. You can lean forward to feel a deeper stretch.

Low Lunge (Hold for 30 seconds on each side)

The low lunge is a good way of releasing the tension in your glutes and hamstrings.

Cobra Stretch (Hold for 30 seconds)

Starting Position

Lay on your stomach for the starting position.

Ending Position

Push yourself up with your shoulders and try keeping your hips facing the mat. Hold at ending position.

Additionally, I have provided you with my recent lower body stretching/mobility workout, I perform this before every lower body session.

I have posted the video below.

I filmed this workout this morning. The stretches mainly target the hamtrings, glutes and lower body.

In my opinion, stretching is especially crucial to do during our time indoors, it provides relief to tension and gives your body the love it deserves.
