The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

This nine-minute video walks you through basic, but effective stretches for the hips, hamstrings, and quads. This sequence is perfect for the beginner, but it’s also great for more advanced trainees to revisit these basic stretches to maintain mobility or restore movement after a hard week of training.

Throughout the video, I offer adjustments and modifications so you can follow this sequence at your level. You can follow right along with me, or pause the video if you feel you want to spend more time in any of the positions.

Equipment needed:

  • 2 blocks
  • 1 elastic band

Remember: do this sequence at your own level. Like everything else we try to take on in our lives, mobility work is about small changes and consistency. So don’t expect perfection and don’t try to do it just like me — I’ve been doing this a long time. But this is also why I know that if you take ten minutes a day to do these basic stretches it can result in lifelong change.
