Hey EF Fam,
After years of studying anatomy, kinesiology, flexibility and mobility,
I created this full body stretching routine that targets all the areas of
the entire body that need the most love. If you are already an EFer,
you know this routine well 🙂
You may have heard me mention this before… static stretching is the
most productive and beneficial after you have worked out and can be
deleterious before working out because it relaxes the muscle and that
is the last thing you want to do before a work out.
“Static stretching means a stretch is held in a challenging but comfortable position for a period of time, usually somewhere between 10 to 30 seconds. Static stretching is the most common form of stretching found in general fitness and is considered safe and effective for improving overall flexibility.”
This simple routine targets:
- The hip flexors
- Adductors (inner thigh)
- Abductors (outer thigh)
- Gluteal muscles
- Hips and lower back
- The entire posterior chain (all the muscles along the back from the heel to the head)
- Latissimus dorsi
They are all done in sequence to maximize results to each individual muscles.
For example, we stretch the hip flexors first to relax and deactivate them so that
you can get a better stretch with the hamstrings etc.
Here is the video for the full body stretching routine
Now you can follow the entire stretching routine anywhere anytime.
