Hiking, biking, and playing through the summer is the best. But, between the miles on the trails and the miles in a car or plane, our lower legs can start to feel stiff. For your next adventure, pack a tennis ball and give these 3 moves a try.
For our final week of Trail Month, we have one, final standing stretch. This one to open up your sides which can start to feel compressed after a long day out. We are also working on our cores with this banded exercise.
Does your low back get cranky out on the trail? Try this hinge stretch to get some relief. Then strengthen the hips and core with this banded exercise to keep your back and knees healthy as you blaze the trail.
This week, we are stretching our hamstrings and again, this standing stretch can be done anywhere. We are also working on a variation of a squat that helps strengthen our legs in multiple planes.
For the month of June, we will be working on getting ourselves trail ready. Check out our stretches and moves all month and keep yourself safe out on your adventures.
This week, we are stretching out our quads with a standing stretch that can be done anywhere. Then we are keeping our hips (and knees) happy with a lateral hip strengthener.
