INSTRUCTIONS

STANDING BOW STRETCH

Focus for this exercise:

hamstring stretch on the supporting leg and quadriceps and hip stretch on the working leg. Increases balance / stability.

 

Start facing sideways.

 

Put a loop around the ankle of back leg.

 

Knee of back leg is bent.

 

Gently pull the strap down/forward until you feel a good stretch in your quads.

Try to keep your shoulders away from your ears and engage your shoulder blades to the back. This will benefit your shoulder blade muscle strength.

 

Tighten your glutes to get more of a workout.

 
 
 
Challenge 1:

Lift your heel up and down and slowly bend and stretch your knee of your lifting leg to work out your quads.
