Half Kneeling Anterior Chain Stretch

HOW: Begin this stretch by having a resistance band anchored overhead and assume a half kneeling position with the knee of the side you want to stretch planted on the ground. From this position, grab onto the band overhead, tuck the pelvis to a neutral position, and gently shift your weight forward onto the planted foot.  Allow your weight to shift forward letting the arm advance overhead. Hold for the prescribed amount of time and then return to the starting position.   
  • FEEL: You will feel a stretch through your planted hip, abdominal region, and  your shoulder joint. 
  • COMPENSATION: You should not feel any discomfort in your low back, if you do, try assuming a more neutral pelvic position.
