Mr. Diabetes® Home Fitness Program – Frog Stretch

REMINDER:  Check with your medical team to determine if you have any issues that may prevent you from performing this particular stretch.  They may have suggestions on how YOU might modify it.

CAUTION: IF AT ANY TIME DURING THIS STRETCH YOU FEEL PRESSURE ON THE KNEE AND/OR HIP JOINTS, STOP AT ONCE!!

Imagine you’re a frog sitting on a lily pad.  Assume that position.

Get down on all fours.  Your knees are on the floor and spread wider than your shoulders.  Your feet are on the floor in such a way that your toes are pointed to opposite walls and your soles are pointed to the wall behind you.  Keeping your arms straight while pushing your shoulders up and back, settle back towards your feet.  Hold this position for :30 seconds.

NEXT:  While keeping your legs and feet in the same position, walk your hands forward until you’re resting on your forearms and elbows. Now, press your pelvis towards the floor.  Hold for :30 seconds.

NEXT:  Return to starting position.  Repeat.
