General And Specifics

  • this exercise is often executed as a dynamic stretching and warm up combination
  • hamstrings and lower back are stretched
  • make sure that the motion is slow and not resilient, otherwise the lower back area is strained too much

Starting Position

  • stand upright, the feet a bit wider than shoulder width apart
  • knees are slightly bent
  • stretch out the arms to the sides and bring them in line with the shoulders
  • keep the back straight and the shoulders pulled back

Correct Execution

  • bend over
  • you can bend the knees a bit more now
  • turn your upper body to the side, so that the lower arm points to the opposite foot
  • the other arm points up
  • now rotate to the opposite side
  • do several reps
