Stretch your legs

Stretch your legsBack pain is not usually linked to any serious disease, but can be debilitating and emotionally distressing. It can be triggered by bad posture while sitting or standing, bending awkwardly, or lifting incorrectly. Also tight hamstrings can pull on the back of your pelvis and aggravate back pain. Here’s a useful little practice to prevent back pains that according to studies affect over 10% of us.

Practice: Stretch your legs

Stick to: 5 minutes every other day

  1. Lie down on your back, legs bent and your feet flat on the floor.
  2. Bend one leg in towards your chest.
  3. Use a tie or belt to catch hold of your foot.
  4. Lift and straighten your leg best you can.

How high does your leg go? How straight?

Do you feel the back of your tight stretching?

No forcing, bouncing or struggling, just breathe and hold for 30 seconds on each leg. If one leg is stiffer than the other, spend a few extra breaths in the stretch on that side.

Happy stretching!
