This week I will be showing you how to do the Double Leg Stretch exercise.
This week’s Double Leg Stretch exercise takes last week’s Single Leg Stretch one step further by using both legs at the same time. I have also added a more advanced modification for those of you that are up for a challenge.
The Double Leg Stretch exercise is slightly more challenging for the leg and abdominal muscles, and it also builds strength in the back.
AVOID: Allowing your lower back to come off the floor; use your abdominals to stabilize your core while legs
TARGETS: Abdominal muscles
BENEFITS: Lengthens legs
Strengthens abdominal muscles
NOT ADVISABLE IF YOU HAVE: Lower back pain
That is me done for this week. I will see you next time.
