Active Isolated Stretching

12 Apr 2013

I’ve always had a bit of trouble with tightness in my legs and buttocks and it boils down to me being inconsistent with stretching. I’ve recently found these stretching exercises to help. I’m nowhere near as flexible, but the videos nicely represent the movement and holding you should be performing.
