1 KNEE TAP
Place a resistance loop around your thighs above the knees. Come down to all fours with the shoulders over the wrists and the hips over the knees. Step your legs back and make one straight line with your body. Engage your core and tap your right knee to the ground. Bring it back and alternate (tap your left knee to the ground and back). Begin with 8 taps on each side. To modify, come down to your elbows.
2 BACK ROLL
Get seated on your mat and place a foam roller horizontal behind you. Bend your knees and slowly come down on your back. Interlace your fingers behind your head and keep tension in your body. The roll should now be underneath your thoracic spine. On your inhale, with control and your core engaged, press your heels into the ground and lift your hips. On your exhale bring your hips down. Repeat 10 times.
3 FINGER PINCH
Grab a hand massage egg and pinch it between your thumb and index finger. Keep your finger joints slightly curled. Never overstretch your finger joints!! Pinch 10 times with your index finger. Now, switch to your middle finger and pinch 10 times. Repeat with your ring finger and pinky. When you are done, turn to your other hand. You might feel some tension after exercising. Use the hand massage egg to roll the balls of the thumbs afterwards.
4 RESISTED BRIDGE
Place a resistance loop around your thighs, close to the hips, and lie down on your mat. Bend your knees and place your feet flat on the mat. Extend your arms down and grab the loop with your hands. On your next exhale press your heels into the ground and lift your hips. Keep your hands on the mat. On you inhale come back to starting position. You should feel a gentle resistance in the loop. Repeat 15 times.
5 PILATES STRETCH
Lie down on your mat. Bend your knees and place a Pilates band around the sole of your right foot. Grab the ends with each hand. Slowly extend your right leg and bring it closer to your chest. Feel a nice hamstring stretch. You can easily play with the intensity of the stretching by keeping your knee slightly bent or increase resistance with your hands. Take 5 delicious breaths and take it to the left side. You should feel the stretch in your muscles and not your joints!
