Neutral Spine Stretching Routine
This 11 minute stretching routine can be a nice way to end a workout. Make sure you check with your PT if you have any musculoskeletal issues before you stretch. We cover the majority of the two joint muscle of the lower limbs: the hamstrings, gluteals, quadriceps, gastrocnemius, and also the posterior capsule of the shoulder.

Join me as I review the basics of using the foam roller to mobilize the tissue of your legs including: the gastrocnemius/ soleus (calf muscles), the hamstrings, quadriceps, the dreaded iliotibial band and gluteals. For more information on using your foam roller, check out our foam roller workshop recording available for download.
