The Crane Stretch properly prepared you for the Ankle Reach stretch (note that your stance is wider.) In this stretch you’re reaching down and grabbing hold of your ankle. From here you pull yourself toward your ankle and pressing your forehead to your knee. Hold and Repeat.
For your safety and best results:
- Proper breathing: exhale to a 4 count as you reach into the stretch-inhale to a 4 count as you straighten up to starting position.
- Maintaining a slight bend in your knees to avoid strain to your body. This flexibility serves, effectively, the same way as a shock absorber.
