To do this stretch the stretcher should be sitting, with their knees bent and legs hanging off the edge. Keeping their back straight they should twist as far right as they can, a trick is to keep the stretchers nose in line with their sternum. The partner should reach under the stretchers right arm and put their hand the stretchers right anterior shoulder. The partner’s left hand should be on the stretchers left scapula providing support. The stretcher should then attempt to rotate to their left with the partner providing matching resistance. The stretcher should then relax and inhale deeply. On the exhale the stretcher should rotate further to the right.
Obviously we could not include every stretch required for this activity instead this blog will aimed to cover the main stretches used and maybe a few you may not have thought of previously. Please remember to follow the safe stretching tips we have given you in the previous blog as well as the individual safety tips for static and PNF stretching.
