Standing Forward Bend Stretch

Natalie Gulbis stretching

This is a great stretch for any athlete, but golfers, racquetball and tennis players, baseball players, and swimmers should consider this a core stretch for their sports.

  • Begin by standing up straight with your shoulders relaxed and back.
  • Reach your arms behind your back and interlace your fingers.
  • Lift your shoulders up toward your ears and lift your hands away from your back.
  • Slowly bend forward at the waist, keeping your back flat, not rounded.
  • Continue bending forward and lift your hand over your head as far forward as comfortable.
  • At a full stretch, you will feel tension in your hamstrings and in your shoulders.
  • Hold for 10-20 seconds and release.
  • Repeat two to three times.
