Stretch of the Day

By PPSM Staff

From a standing position with your feet slightly apart, engage your abdominal muscles to stabilize your spine. Gently exhale and bend forward from your hips (“hip hinging”). Try to keep your knees straight (but not locked). Slowly lower your torso towards the floor until you can place your fingers or palms of your hands on the floor in front of your body. If your hamstrings are tight, you may need to bend your knees slightly. Try to keep the spine flat. Slowly begin to walk your hands forward, away from your feet. Your heels will begin to rise off the floor. Continue walking your hands forward until you reach a full-push-up position where your spine, hips and head are level with the floor (plank position). Slowly begin walking your feet forward towards your hands, taking steps without moving your hands. Maintain a flat spine throughout and continue walking until your feet are close to your hands.
