Lying Low Back Twist
This twist feels like the cherry on top of a sundae after a long run. The twist helps release back tension while stretching the outside of the hip and thigh and lengthens the IT band too.
- Lying on your back, extend your arms out to your sides. Bend your knees, and cross your right leg over your left.
- Slowly rotate your knees to the right, allowing them to come to the floor. It's OK if your left shoulder comes off the floor. Hold for 20 to 30 seconds. Then, slowly bring your knees back to center.
- Reverse directions and twist to the left. Repeat as needed.
