This is an interesting stretch; it requires strength while it targets the lower back, buttocks, ham strings, calves, Achilles heels and the toes.
HOW: Assume the “push up” position, except your buttocks are raised high above the rest of your body. Your hands and feet are flat on the floor. Alternating your feet, raise one foot at a time onto the ball of your foot while the other foot remains flat on the floor. Do this 10 times for each foot. Repeat.
By this time in the program I expect you to be breathing properly – diaphragmatic breathing. Of course, a little reminder, now and again, won’t hurt. AND, remember to breathe this way for every breath you take – all day and every day. YES, it’s that important!!
