Fitness Friday Week 28: Wake Up!

This is my favorite short series to help me wake up my body every morning. To start, interlace your fingers behind your back, straighten your arms, and press your hands towards the floor, lifting your chest and gaze up to enter a soft backbend. Then, begin to hinge at the waist lowering your torso into a fold and bringing your arms up towards the sky. Releasing your hands, take ahold of your opposite elbows and pull your forearms towards the ground to lengthen through the spine. To go deeper into your forward fold, lean your weight towards your toes while lifting your hips up and engaging your thighs. If you’d still like a deeper stretch of your back and hamstrings, take your hands and wrap them around your calves. Good morning body!
