Legs & Hips

Maintaining the legs in a static position will keep the muscles and tendons in a fixed contracted state, leading to muscle strain and fatigue. These exercises will increase circulation to the muscles, increasing relaxation and comfort.

1. Leg Bend

While seated, hold onto left leg by interlacing fingers just behind the knee. Slowly pull leg towards chest. Repeat exercise with right leg.

2. Calf Stretch

Stand a minimal distance from a solid support, leaning against it using your forearms as support. Bend the left leg, with the left foot placed in front of your body. Keep the right leg straight behind you (heel flat on floor). Slowly move hips forward. Repeat exercise with left leg.
