Partner Stretches for Partner Training

Try these partner exercises during your partner training sessions. I just shared them with my clients too! They are fun and they really work!

It’s always a good idea to keep your connective tissue and your body limber and flexible so we will finish our series with a few stretches that you can do together at the end of your workouts.

derrikcody1Hamstring Stretch:

Start by sitting down facing each other with your legs straight and feet touching.  Each of you holds onto the end of a towel.  One of you slowly stretches forward while the other leans backwards keeping abdominals tight.  Be sure to communicate to each other to know when the stretch is perfect and when it might be too much.  Hold for 10-15 seconds and then switch.  Switch back and forth 3-5 times. Now perform the same with your legs wider in a straddle position.

Glute Stretch:

codyderrick1Start by lying on your backs in opposite directions with your legs suspended in the air and your feet touching. Your knees and hips should be at a 90 degree angle in order to get a good stretch. Each of you crosses one ankle over the other leg and rests into this position. You should feel the stretch in your buttock, hip region.

Inner Thigh / Back Extension Stretch

codykStart by sitting down back to back with your knees bent and the souls of your feet touching. You will start by slowly stretching forwards to feel an inner thigh stretch as your partner gently bends backwards to feel a great stretch through their upper back. Hold for 10-15 seconds and then switch.  Repeat for 3-5 sets.

Quadricep Stretch:

ccody_AFace each other, stand on one leg and hold onto your partners shoulder with one hand to help with your balance.  Grab the other foot and bring it towards your buttock until you feel a good stretch in the front of your thigh.  Hold the stretch for approximately 30 seconds.
