Reps: 3-4
Sets: 1
Intensity: Moderate
Hold: 10-30 seconds

  • Maintain a neutral head and spine with your shoulders down and back and abdominal muscles contracted.

Too hard? Perform the cobbler's stretch while lying on your back.

Too easy? Sit against a wall and pull in your feet toward your buttocks for a greater stretch.
