Post-Run Static Stretching
Video by Nuno Costa
This video focuses on your post workout stretch routine. We program static stretching that focuses on certain body parts such as the hips, low back, hamstrings, calves, IT Band, etc…Probably the best and go to stretch is the couch stretch that targets your hips and quads.
One of the simplest stretches can just be to sit and reach with your legs straight that will target your hamstrings. From that seated position you can go into a cross shin stretch that will target your lower back. For your calves you can use a wall or a rack to target that area. For your upper back you can use a box, rack or a table/chair and press your arms into as you get a stretch through your upper back. The last couple of stretches target the shoulder area where you bring one arm over to the opposite side and hold or also bringing the arm behind your back and holding. With any of these stretches spend at least 2 to 3 minutes per side.
