Life at the UdG

Legs and column

  • Lateral stretching 1: Glutei half-minor, tensor of the pyramidal fascia lata, cintilla iliotibial, and external rotators of hip
  • Lateral stretching 2: Glutei half-minor, pyramidal and external rotators of hip
  • Posterior stretching: Isquiotibials and twin
  • Former and posterior stretching: Muscular chain and former and posterior fascial, mobility to articulate column, scapular waist and pelvis

Variants posterior stretching:

  • Placing the neuter foot in position (tip of the foot looks at the ceiling): Global stretching
  • Placing the foot in internal rotation (tip of the foot looks no inside): We pull femoral biceps
  • Placing the foot in external rotation (tip of the foot looks towards outside): We prioritise to pull the semimebranós muscles and semitendinós

Remember that...

  • The selfstretchings and the massages with ball have to be carried out in a slow, safe and controlled way
  • Time of stretching and massage: between 30 seconds and 2 minutes
  • They have to provide comfort, welfare and pleasant sensations
  • They can reduce the pain and the articular mobility
  • The breaths are deep
  • Time: From 5 to 10 breaths
  • It is, a scapular waist, an exercise of articular mobility of the column of the pelvis and of the very interesting sacrum for everybody
  • If you spend many hours this exercise sitting it is recommended to repeat the exercise from 2 to 3 times
