Welcome to another Midweek Mobility session, this week we will be lengthening out those LONG muscles that run along the back of your legs and stop you from touching your toes! Sound familiar??
Make sure when you stretch that your tail bone remains on the floor – to get a bigger stretch your lower back will try to sink, resist the ego of a big range and instead control the pelvis so the muscle has to stretch around the angle of a stable pelvis. In the long run this will create a bigger change in length and reduce the pull of the hamstring on the lower back – this can be a BIG WIN for lower back ache!
