Today I want to show you what could possibly be the best stretch out there – the spiderman stretch.

The picture on the bottom shows the end position of the stretch.  To begin start in the up position of a push up (the top picture.  For the movement just bring your foot up outside your hand and hold.  Bring your foot back down to the starting position and switch sides.

If you have never done this stretch before you will want to take it slow and not try to bring you foot all the way up to the hand position at first.  Remember most of us are very tight in the hips.

This movement can also be used as a warm up.  Instead of holding the stretch at the end position just continue going through the movements and change sides.

Stay Motivated,

      love this stretch, to make it more interesting, you can lift your hands up in the air….a little hard to balance, but it really stretches out that hip flexor area.
