30 Day Health Challenge Day 13

The weekend is here! Lets celebrate by getting back into those couch stretches. Day 13: Couch Stretch for 3 minutes each side.... are you noticing a pattern? 

The couch stretch is excellent for combating all of the sitting we do in our daily lives. When we sit we are actively shortening and damaging our hips! The couch stretch helps to bring this back to balance. This improves hip extension and knee flexion and thereby "turning on" your glutes. An elastic band, like pictured here adds many pounds of tractioning force to your hip which creates a more targeted and stronger stretch.
