Your calves are usually the most overused muscle groups.
Athletes flex their foot more than a few thousands times a day.
It's important to stretch your calves.
Pull your toe against the wall. Maintain a straight posture while you are pulling the torso close to the wall.
You should feel the stretch in the back of your lower leg. Do it once for each part of the leg.
Due to increased sitting times we all face, our hip flexors and hamstrings get tight and can cause lower back pain.
This can happen due to shortened position that negatively impacts the length-tension relationship throughout your lower body area.
This stretch will focus on getting those parts looser.
Stand up with chest high, and keep your hands on hips.
Push your butt back and flex from your hips. You should feel a stretch in your hamstrings (not lower back).
Make sure to maintain your back straight and don't bend over through the stretch.
You are stretching your hamstrings not your lower back.
Most back injuries occur due to poor range of motion in the area of your glutes.
It's important to stretch your glutes so you can safely get into a squat and deadlift position.
You have to use your glutes with these movements, and not your lower back area. We'll stretch your gluteus maximus.
Lie on your back and copy my stance. Flex your knee to a 90 degree angle and use your opposite hand to pull the knee toward your chest.
Also make sure you keep your leg across your body.
