Muscles

Process

Step 1: Standing tall, grab the Link™ with the active side hand and bend your active leg knee so the foot comes up to the glutes.

Step 2: Bring the active hand up behind the head. Pull the hands up to full extension above the head.


Tips

Do not let the active knee flare out to the side. Squeeze the glute to elongate the hip flexor further and stabilize the stance. It is important to keep the core tight as to avoid leaning and unwanted stress on other muscles. Keep the upper back firm against the ground and avoid hyperextension in the back. Hold the stretch position for 30 seconds so the Link™ can take up slack as the muscle relaxes and allows for further mobility.
