The first time we saw this exercise we thought it was relaxing and maybe not even effective… Oh boy we got proved wrong. But therefore, we can now say it really helps us in terms of stretching the lower back and upper leg area.
How to do it?
Lay down on your back
Bend your legs, so that they are in comfortable position
Your feet are not in line with your body, they are placed 10 – 20cm away from your shoulder line
Now press your knees together until they touch
Feet stay flat on the ground
Hold the stretch for 30 seconds
Repeat up to five times
If you don’t feel a stretch, your feet are too close together
After some time, you can place your feet further away from each other
We like this stretch because it is so simple. The closer your legs are together, the more it gets visible that you have to stretch this are more. We recommend not rushing into it by placing your feet too far away from each other and overstretching your lower back and upper leg.
