But firstly, some important cues to know…
- Hold each passive stretch for 2 minutes.
- Best performed after resistance training to solidify ranges of motion achieved in the session.
- Do not perform passive stretching before resistance training as it is counterproductive to preparing the joints and muscles for training and can increase the chance of injury.
- It is important to engage in regular mobility and strength training for best results in improving full body mobility.
- Forward fold (lower back and complete posterior chain stretch)
- Bench dip (anterior shoulder and chest stretch)
- Couch stretch (hip flexor and quadriceps stretch)
- Bench pigeon (glute stretch)
- Assisted middle split – use paralettes to hold yourself in position (adductor and medial hamstring stretch)
- Anterior line stretch (complete anterior chain stretch)
- Anterior Ankle Stretch (anterior leg and ankle stretch)
