This stretch is a lot like what we did on Day 6, but today we are doing a two-for-one with our overhead position. I really enjoy this stretch because it gets my shoulders and my hamstrings simultaneously. If you are a crossfitter, then this stretch should be on your daily to do list. Just like I cautioned you on Day 6, if you cannot sit up straight with your legs out on the ground, then please elevate your butt on some plates. Start with a wide straddle of at least 90 degrees between your legs and take your arms out to a snatch grip width. It should be a width that you an do dislocates with. Inhale and sit tall and exhale and hinge forward trying to bring your belly to the floor. You’ll notice I sit up taller every couple of breaths and then lower myself down. I find that I release further into the stretch by doing this every few breaths.
Here are the rules for the 30-Day Stretch Fucking Harder Challenge. Each day do the deep stretch, post it on Instagram and tag some friends to do it with you. Post your stretch with the tags: #stretchfuckingharder #supplepandas #30daypandachallenge Tag me @coachpanda. Come back here to my website or vimeo channel to see more details on each stretch and modifications and scaling options. Try to stay in each stretch for at least 2 minutes per stretch per side. Remember to breathe slowly and deeply and start gradually and move deeper over time. Back off if it hurts.
