Are you ready for summer vacation? Jet setting and travelling means sitting in trains, planes, and automobiles, which can leave you feeling stiff and sore. So, pack your bags, double-check your itinerary, and include some simple Essentrics stretches throughout your journey to arrive feeling limber and light!
HALF -HEIGHT ARM SWINGS WITH SIDE BODY BENDS
These arm swings will improve your circulation while warming up your elbows, spine, torso, hips, and shoulders.
Allow your arm to hang loosely and swing it downward in a semi-circle as you shift your weight back and forth in a small lunge. Remain relaxed and try to feel a small stretch through your rib muscles!
Gardening is one of our favorite summertime activities. It’s a great way to enjoy the sun and get your hands dirty. Remain pain free while pulling weeds and planting seeds – these Essentrics trademark exercises will loosen up your back, knees, and neck.
SPINAL ROLL AND OPEN-CHEST SWAN SEQUENCE
This exercise is a complete rebalancing sequence. The spinal roll will stretch your back, the open-chest swan will loosen the front of your body.
Tuck your tailbone under and drop your hands just above your knees. Slowly roll up, one vertebra at a time. Once your spine is completely stretched, reach your arms above your head and open them up behind you.
Cycling is a great way to get moving and enjoy the gorgeous summer weather. Whether you’re getting on your bike for leisure or sport, it’s important to keep your body balanced, strong, and flexible. Incorporating Essentrics into your daily routine will speed up your recovery and get you on the road!
HIP STRETCHING SEQUENCE FOR KNEES
This exercise will help release tight hip muscles and increase mobility in your legs, which will increase your endurance while cycling!
Start by standing diagonally behind your chair and place the outside leg on the seat of the chair. While holding the chair for balance, bend both knees. Lift and lower your hips repeatedly, swaying from side to side.
