Quick Daily Stretching Routine

Quick Daily Stretching Routine is exactly what the title describes–a long stretch from Heather Robertson. Perfect to add on to the end of some of her workouts that have no stretches at the end. In fact, I used it to finish of a several of her workouts that I stacked to get a 36 minute workout. This 10 minute stretch ended my workout very nicely. Unlike Heather’s other workouts, this stretch is done voice over.

Quick Daily Stretching Routine is 10:43 minutes; 1:30 minute intro and the last 40 seconds is Heather talking. Start laying flat on your back with arms extended overhead.

  1. Pull right knee into chest
  2. Figure 4 stretch (reclining pigeon)
  3. Cross knee over to other side of body for spinal twist stretch, extending arm in opposite direction
  4. Bend right knee underneath you so foot is against glute, torso is leaning back on elbows (quad stretch)
  5. Bring both knees in to chest and raise head and shoulders, curling into a ball
  6. Repeat #1-4 on other side of body
  7. Sit cross leg and do a side bend, reaching arm over to other side of body
  8. Neck stretches
  9. Tricep stretch
  10. Place hands behind head and open elbows out to the sides, opening/stretching the chest
  11. Child’s pose
  12. Cobra
  13. Down dog
  14. Forward fold while pedaling legs (alternate bending knees)
  15. Continue forward fold but with both legs straight and arms crossed, hands gripping elbows
  16. Roll up to standing, extend arms overhead and arch spine
