EXERCISE 1: SINGLE LEG DEADLIFT
WHY THIS IS GOOD FOR FLEXIBILITY: you are focusing on strengthening the main muscles that help increase your range of motion. With strong hamstrings (back of your legs), core, and lower back…you will be strengthening the muscles needed to increase flexibility
EXERCISE 2: PLANK LEG LIFTS
WHY THIS IS GOOD FOR FLEXIBILITY: this exercise focusing on strengthening your entire core, not just upper or lower abs. Your core is your powerhouse and the strong your core is the stronger more flexible you will be!
EXERCISE 3: SUPERMAN V-UPS
WHY THIS IS GOOD FOR FLEXIBILITY: this is one of our favorite exercises because it focuses on strengthening your core and lower back – must have muscles to increase your flexibility!
EXERCISE 4: SIDE LUNGE KICKS
WHY THIS IS GOOD FOR FLEXIBILITY: this exercise helps to open up your hip flexors and works body control. The side lunge focuses on hip flexor mobility (necessary for flexibility) and the standing lunge works balance and body control.
