Get Ready for the #ROXYFitness 5k

Over the next week we will be focusing on tips for our runners. To get you ready for the #ROXYfitness 5k, Roxy has created an easy three stretch yoga sequence for your warm-up or cool down. These stretches will help to ease any muscle soreness, prevent injury and increase your flexibility when running.

Repeat the three stretches for 10 minutes and make sure you balance the time spent on each side of your body.

STRETCH ONE – Side Bend Mountain Pose

  1. Breathe in and join your hands together above your head.
  2. As you breathe out, bend from your hips to the right. Remember to not bend forward or back. Imagine there is a sheet of glass touching your nose and butt.
  3. You should feel this stretch down the left side of your body and ribs.
  4. Breathe in and out of your nose, slow and steady, holding the stretch for around 30 seconds
  5. Now repeat this movement to the left.

STRETCH TWO – Wide-Legged Forward Bend

  1. Widen your stance by stepping your legs apart – the wider the better.
  2. Now take a deep breath in and as you breathe out bend forward from your hips and keep your back straight.
  3. If you can, touch or hold your ankles. If you can’t, simply keep your hands on your hips and bend forward as far as you can with a straight back.
  4. You should feel this stretch through your hamstrings and spine.
  5. Breathe slow and steady, in and out of your nose, holding the stretch for around 30 seconds.

STRETCH THREE – Warrior II

  1. Keeping your legs at the same distance apart as Stretch Two, turn your right foot horizontal and bend your knee to a 90 angle.
  2. Breathe in and shift your weight the right side of your body.
  3. As you breathe out you want to aim for you hand to touch your ankle or as close as you can get with a straight body. Imagine there is an imaginary sheet of glass touching your nose and butt.
  4. Turn your head and look up to your left hand.
  5. Make sure your knee isn’t bent over your ankle.
  6. This is a great yoga stretch for your thighs, spine, neck and ribs.
  7. Breathe slow and steady, in and out of your nose, holding the stretch for around 30 seconds
  8. Now repeat this movement to the left.
