Hi, I'm TJ Pierce with and today we're going to talk about stretching after your bike ride. So as we spend a lot of time on our bike, we tend to get a little flexor chain dominant. And what that means is that your wrists are flexed, your trunk is flexed, your hips are flexed, and what that tends to do is lead to a lot of tightness in those muscles which can really wreak havoc on your posture. So after your long bike ride, what we're going to do is a Swiss ball extension stretch. And all you're really going to do is you're going to lay down on your Swiss ball, you're going to straighten your legs as far as you can, you're going to reach back as far as you can, try to reach the ground with your arms, you're going to actively push into the ground with your hands and with your feet and let your head lay back on the ball. If this is uncomfortable on your neck, feel free to roll a towel up and put it underneath your neck. And what this is going to help you do is it's going to help you lengthen all those muscles you've tightened on your bike ride. I'm TJ Pierce with Pierce Family Wellness and I hope this takes a little stiffness out of your bike riding.
