Chair Leg Stretch
Sometimes we find ourselves trapped in a static position for long periods of time with no easy way to stretch our legs. Think about that last long car trip you took, or yesterday’s two-hour, death-by-PowerPoint meeting at the office. Our legs aren’t meant to stay cramped and still for long periods. Hip Fit’s Chair Leg Stretch is a great way to alleviate soreness and stretch those aching hamstrings.
Sit at the edge of a sturdy chair and extend one leg out in front of you. Tuck in your abs and point your toes up to the ceiling. Now is not the time to slump. Keeping your back straight, slowly lean forward until you feel the stretch in the back of your thigh. It’s important to keep your knee straight throughout the stretch. Hold this position for 30 seconds before returning to the start. Switch it up, and do it again!
