Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and while we are all excited for that delicious dinner, we all know how we're going to feel afterwards. Our stomachs are full, and our backs and hips ache from sitting in chairs all day. Today, our Move of the Week features a series of stretches that you can do right in your chair (or on the couch before your tryptophan coma) that will help open up your hips, stretch out your back and get your glutes firing. So, enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner, but get at least a little movement in your day to help prevent those post dinner pains.
Many of us on the East Coast got pummeled with snow this weekend. After shoveling out for 2 days, many of you are probably nursing sore a tight muscles this Monday morning. Because of that, today we're not focusing on a muscle building move, but on more of a stretch. This Yoga Plex stretch is great for releasing tight muscles in your hip flexors and your upper back.
There you have it! Hopefully this has helped ease some of your discomfort today. See you back next week for another Move Monday by J-Tab Training.
