Post-Run Stretching part 3

4). Supine bridge-ups. Laying on your back, bend your knees and bring your feet flat, almost against your butt, and about 3 inches apart. Toes are pointing forward and feet are parallel. On an exhale, peal your butt, low and mid back off the floor. Lengthen the back of your neck. Belly button to spine. Hold the stretch for 60 seconds. On an exhale, lower your upper back, mid and lower back and butt to the floor (visualize each individual vertebrae peeling down one at a time). Repeat two more times. Going a little deeper into the stretch each time, and always relaxed in the neck and shoulders.

  1. These are really well-coached blogs for terrific exercises, Jeff. Sometimes written descriptions are not as clear-but your are. Thank you for sharing. I’m a busy mom of a 20-month-old, and I need all the flexibility I can create!
