and you want to hold the stretch as you explore some
tight spots with some movement.
2 sets : 5 to 10 pulsing but slow reps
*do both sides

BAND ENCOURAGED PANCAKE
SPLITS FOLDING FWD
use a band attached low and in front of you to
help you pull yourself into a better position on these.

as you can.

EXAGGERRATED COSSACK SQUAT

before switching sides. can add loading if desired or
applicable.

DEAD HANG
wear wrist straps and hang with a shoulder width pronated
grip as long as you can from a pull up bar. next hang with

stance is behind the bar a ways and load the smith on you
in the squatted stance. now do a squatted calf raise, followed by
pushing your knees back as you stand up outta the squat
