I’ve PR’d at multiple lifts since I’ve been working out at Elevated CrossFit.
In case you were wondering…
back squat 135 lbs (1 rep max)
front squat 130lbs (1 rep max)
deadlift 115lbs (3 rep, multiple times)
shoulder press 70lbs (3 rep max)
and while I look forward to PRing at other lifts and learning new skills, like rope climbs, and finally getting an unassisted pull up…
one of my favorite things Tyson has taught me is this hip stretch.
I never really knew how tight my hips were until I did this stretch. I feel like it opens up everything in my lower back, hips, quads and hammies.
so if you feel a lot of tightness through your hips before/after a run, or ever…
*cough, cough, Ann cough, cough*
You must try this stretch ASAP.
if you are really flexible, you can drop down onto both elbows.
I failed to take a photo of this. my bad.
then drop your right arm on the ground.
feel it strrreeeetch.
then drop your left arm, reeeeaalllly feel it stretch.
try to push your pelvis into your heel.
then… lean out away from your right leg with both arms straight.
if it looks like I’m in pain in this picture…
well… it’s one of those “hurts so good” kind of things.
ahh… there’s a smile. 🙂
hold each stretch for at least 30 seconds,
and work your way up to 60 seconds and then 90 seconds.
Now, obviously switch sides.
This stretch was life changing for me.
I hope it helps you too! 🙂
