17 Minute Stretch Routine

Staying flexible is something that has always been an issue for me. In the past 6 months, I’ve followed this 17 minute stretch routine (or something similar) and tried to do it at least 3 times a week. Hips, Calves, and Hamstrings are generally the areas where I am very tight so this routine is somewhat catered to helping loosen them up.

  1. Hip Flexor Stretch (2 mins/side)
  2. Pigeon Stretch (2 mins/side)
  3. Quad Stretch (2 mins total) – If you can’t go back all the way that is totally fine. Only go to the point where you feel the stretch in your hip flexor and quads.
  4. Elbow to Inside of Foot (2 mins/side)
  5. Hamstring Stretch from Knee (1 min/side)
  6. Deep Squat Hold (1 min total)
