30 Day Leg Stretch Challenge

Alex Larsson has just come out with his most recent product called the 30-Day Flexibility Home Stretching Challenge. The Stretch Challenge is an online video program containing eleven dynamic stretches designed to assist stretch, strengthen and enhance flexibility. It is very easy to use, easy to learn and gives excellent results in a relatively short time. The videos are divided into categories such as core strength, joint mobility, flexibility, balance and body awareness.

The 8-minute video program has been thoroughly researched by fitness experts and sports specialists to be certain that the stretches do not cause any harm to the body during stretching. The stretches are very gentle and do not need any equipment or special skills to do them. The online video stretching program may be used by individuals of all ages, even when pregnant as the movies are extremely gentle and effective. The hyperbolic stretching program comprises eleven dynamic stretching sessions that last thirty seconds each and includes extending and relaxation music.

The eleven dynamic stretches are divided into three different groups namely Upper, Middle and Lower body stretches. All the dynamic stretches are divided into two groups namely the upper and the middle body stretches. There’s an optional 30 seconds rest between each of the three stretches. The Middle body elongate challenge includes three components namely the forward bend, the backward bend and the one-arm dumbbell row. This is followed by 2 minutes of dynamic stretches for the muscles in the abdomen, lower back and buttocks.

The next group of stretching exercises for your body called the lower body stretch challenge also is made up of set of ten exercises known as the hamstring stretch. The hamstring stretch is essential for increasing the flexibility of the hamstrings as it lengthens the semitendinosus muscle that’s located at the back of the thighs. Apart, from stretching out the hamstrings there are other advantages of doing this exercise because it helps to strengthen the calf muscles also known as the adductors.

The final group of core exercises that will be included in the stretch challenge include the thirty seconds one leg stretch. For doing this stretch you will have to lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Your arms should be at a right angle to the body, while your left hand forms a prayer position at the center of your chest. You will need to relax your body and close your eyes. Now you can gradually and deeply inhale for thirty seconds and exhale for thirty seconds, interchanging this breathing with 2 counts of five.

These are simply some of the available Stretch Challenge stretches which are carefully designed for you to do by yourself at home or in your work place. You will find many more than that, which you can do in the website below. Just do a search online and you’ll find a high number of websites where you can find information regarding the latest Stretch Challenge videos and e-books. The great thing about being a part of a Facebook group is that you are able to interact with others who share the same interest with you. You also get to find out more about new stretching techniques like the hip twist and the triangle stretch.

The best way to begin with your thirty seconds one leg stretch would be to lie flat on your back on the floor with your legs together and feet flat on the ground. Then you will bend at the knee and lift your upper body up while gradually extending your right leg upward. Keep your arms straight and repeat for thirty minutes. Another one of the best stretching techniques is the wall vegetable, that was created by Dan Godfrey. This stretch operates on the quadriceps, hamstrings, calves and gluteal muscles.

Bear in mind that dynamic flexibility is important and static stretches should only form a small proportion of your workout, whereas dynamic flexibility is important for everyday tasks such as running and lifting weights. Static stretches therefore include lying flat on your back and lifting your knees up to your chest, or bending in the knee while lifting your buttocks. Dynamic flexibility is formed by twisting and moving your joints and muscles without moving them against their normal direction. This sort of flexibility is also found in yoga asana and is particularly helpful for athletes and serious fitness enthusiasts.
