Day 18 – Half Frog

This is a tough stretch. Take your time with it. It will be worth it. Our adductors/groin muscles get super tight from sitting all day and this is a great way to loosen them up. It will help the bottom of your squat especially if you have a hard time getting your knees out. Get yourself a towel or abmat for under your knee. Notice the position of my feet. I have one foot turned out and the other foot is pointed straight ahead with the sole down. This works the supination of the ankle. Once you are set up try to push your hips back and simultaneously try to give your pelvis some anterior tilt. You’ll feel this all through your inner thighs. It’s very intense. Keep breathing and try to stay relaxed. If you cannot get your elbows to the floor like I have mine, then get something to prop your elbows on like some yoga blocks.

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.
