Stretching is an important part of any fitness routine as it helps improve flexibility, range of motion, and prevent injuries.
We asked an online expert to help us create a stretch routine that incorporates our Bamboo Stick. Please choose the best Bamboo Stick size that works for you.
Remember, always consult a physician or healthcare professional before beginning any new exercise.
Start with 5-10 minutes of light cardio activity such as jogging in place or jumping jacks to warm up your muscles.
Shoulder and Chest Opener:
Hold the Bamboo Stick horizontally behind your back with a wide grip. Gently lift the stick upward and backward, allowing your chest to open up and stretching the front of your shoulders. Hold for 20-30 seconds and repeat 2-3 times.
Standing Hamstring Stretch:
Hold the Bamboo Stick vertically in front of you, with the rubber feet securely on the ground. Extend one leg forward and rest your heel on the ground. Keeping your back straight, hinge forward from the hips until you feel a stretch in the back of your extended leg. Hold for 20-30 seconds and repeat on the other leg. Perform 2-3 sets on each leg.
Stand tall and hold the Bamboo Stick in your right hand with the rubber foot securely on the ground. Bend your left knee, bringing your foot towards your glutes. Reach back with your right hand and grab your left foot or ankle. Gently pull your foot towards your glutes until you feel a stretch in the front of your thigh. Hold for 20-30 seconds and repeat on the other leg. Perform 2-3 sets on each leg.
Standing Side Stretch:
Hold the Bamboo Stick horizontally overhead with a wide grip. Keeping your feet shoulder-width apart, lean to the right, stretching the left side of your body. Hold for 20-30 seconds and repeat on the other side. Perform 2-3 sets on each side.
Seated Spinal Twist:
Sit on the floor with your legs extended in front of you. Hold the Bamboo Stick horizontally across your thighs. Twist your torso to the right, placing your left hand on the stick for support. Place your right hand on the floor behind you and gently rotate your upper body to the right. Hold for 20-30 seconds and repeat on the other side. Perform 2-3 sets on each side.
Remember to breathe deeply and maintain proper form during each stretch. Only stretch to the point of mild tension, avoiding any sharp pain.
If you have any existing injuries or medical conditions, please consult with a healthcare professional before attempting this workout.
