completely extended straight and you take nice little steps with your feet and open your chest up it's far away from that hand as you possibly can so you actually want to try to stretch that arm back behind you now you're going to feel it in your bicep and in your chest if you're feeling it more in your bicep then you might need to roll your shoulder a little bit so just kind of twist your your arm and it's shoulder socket to try to get it to focus more on just your chest we're going to switch sides here in just a second and go ahead and let it relax we're a switch over so that right hand is on that wall this time fingers facing back behind you take those steps with the feet turn those hips out away from you try to open that chest up as far as you can really stretching that arm back behind you remember you want to feel this in your chest primarily so if you're feeling it too much in your bicep roll that shoulder and its sockets a little bit so that elbow is either facing up or down and try to get that bicep to release a little bit you want it just primarily in that chest you feel it through the palm of your hand and your fingers as well and go ahead and let it relax all

that elbow and pull across in front of your chest you actually want to try to pull that shoulder as far across your body as you can try to keep that right shoulder up into that arm as close as you can don't let it open up otherwise you can release that stretch just a little bit just keep pulling on that arm try to keep those lungs open we're almost done we're going to switch sides here in just a second and let it relax go ahead and bring that right arm up across your chest grab with that left hand right behind that elbow pull across as far as you can keeping that left shoulder pushed forward this time you want to feel this through the outside of that shoulder and across your shoulder blade in your back this is a particularly hard stretch to get so if you're not feeling a whole lot don't be surprised we're almost done just a little bit longer and go ahead and let that stretch relax next one is a torso rotation when we doing this for a minute 30 seconds in each direction go ahead and get ready and begin by rounding those shoulders over forward as far as you can without letting that pelvis tip forward you want to keep those hips straight up and down the entire time then you're going to lean off to the left side stretch out back behind you off to the right pausing in the center again then coming back around the opposite direction just try to keep those lungs open breathing normally try to focus on getting as much range of motion as you can but being very diligent to make sure that those hips that pelvis stays perfectly straight up and down in line with those legs you're only stretching around that midsection around that torso just keep that motion going nice and slow under control just got a little bit longer you they're almost done bring it back around so your last one pause at the bottom and let it relax all right this is your last stretch right here this is the lateral bend with reach go ahead and get ready and begin we're going to lean to the left side first so that right arms can come up over top of your head again try to keep those hips pretty much straight up and down you're going to lean off to the left side as far as you possibly can if you need to kind of kick your hips out to the right to get a little bit more of a stretch even down into the side of your hip main place you want to feel it is from the crest of that hip all the way up through that rib cage and even into the outside of that arm just a little bit we're gonna switch you here in just a second and let that relax that left hand is come over your head this time leaning off to the right side remember really try to stretch it out lean as far as you possibly can get a nice stretch from the crest of that hip all the way up for that rib cage to the outside of that arm the more you kick your hips off to the side in this case to the left you're going to feel it more to the outside of that hip and possibly even down to the outside of that left leg the outside of that thigh and

  1. After feeling the benefit of Kelli's Lower Body stretch, I added this one on after my upper body weights routine. Thanks, Daniel- simple but effective. The stretches go on much longer than I usually hold them for (got used to Les Mills quickie stretches after BodyPump) and that is doubtless what is helpful here. I felt much less stiffness than usual even though I have been increasing intensity in my workout. Much appreciated!

  2. Great daily stretch

  28. Thank you sir, see you tomorrow for another abdominal workout.

  29. nice!

  30. I had trouble with some of these, particularly the last one. Stretching to the left side hurt a lot and I had trouble breathing. During a lot of these stretches my hands went numb, will that go away as I continue to stretch and take better care of myself?

  31. holy crap this guy is flexible AF

  32. 200916 workout complete!!

  33. Thank you sir

  34. Great stretch, thank you.

    Some of the directions were unclear, or rather you will say to release or switch followed by "in a few seconds" when i've already released. A timer and a few more graphics would help. Also, the torso stretch says 30 seconds on each side but then is alternating left and right.

    TL:DR: great stretch, please clean up VO and graphics for clarity.

  35. Pro-tip: Watch on 1.25 speed lol
