Advanced Stretching Routine for Martial Artists

Rest your entire body while you stretch your legs

This is a great way to improve your stretching by resting, yes resting. It looks simple but you don’t need to force your legs and hurt your knees to get good results. Follow the following steps:

  • Sit on a mat and get as close to the wall as you can.
  • Your butt should touch the wall.
  • Your knees should be straight, not bent at all.
  • Lay down on your back.
  • Relax the muscles in your legs and slowly open your legs.
  • Let the weight of your own legs open them for you. They will go down as they can, they will work on both legs at the same time.
  • Relax your hips.
  • As your legs go down try to sit, put your hands on the sides and try to touch your forehead to the wall. If there is anything to hold onto even better.

The more you do it the better you will get, you don’t have to force your knees, let gravity do the job for you while you rest. I would recommend stretching like this after a really good routine of 1-hour training.

If you have stretching exercises or any other technique you would like to share, then email us to info@sportsandmartialarts.com thank you in advance for your support.
