Challenge: If you catch yourself wearing workout clothes without any intention of working out… throw these bad boys into your daily strut.

If you are desk bound all day and/or spend a large amount of time sitting in your car, there is a good chance your hamstrings need extra love and lengthening.
Tight hamstrings limit the motion of your pelvis, corrupt your posture, and cause pressure on your low back.
Loosen and lengthen your hamstrings!👇 1️⃣ Start by standing up straight with feet shoulder width apart. Be sure to keep your chest up and back straight.
2️⃣ Extend your leg in front of you placing your heel on the floor, making a 45 degree angel with your leg
3️⃣ Slowly bend forward at the hips with arms hanging down and with legs straight as possible until you start feeling a mild stretch in your lower back and hamstrings.
4️⃣ Try to reach to your toes but avoid pushing yourself too far.
Cheers to a healthier 2018! ✨
