Your New Stretch to Try! The stretch for this month is focusing on the Piriformis. This muscle becomes extremely overactive (tight) when your day involves a lot of sitting at a desk or in a car. The tiny muscle also can be the problem if you are experiencing sciatica or shooting pain that travels down your legs. Had a long day at the office, try this stretch out when you get home.
Lay on your back and cross your left ankle over your right knee. Gently pull your right leg close to you as your push your left knee to the side, hold for 30 seconds, take a deep inhale, exhale out and it should deepen slightly. Hold for another 30 seconds. Switch sides!
