Coach Nicole created this 10-minute flexibility routine to target the key muscles that runners use most.
Very helpful! Thank you!
Like this routine. going to start doing this after workout.
Love to do this one after doing any cardio. Trying to keep leg problems away by making sure I do the right stretches.
Used it, really felt great before, during, after my run. Thanks to coach for doing this.
My favorite video!
We can all do it
i did it.
Missed this one somehow!! Thank You Coach Nicole!!
I just started running this year, and have done some of the calf stretches shown here ... but this was great because of all the others I have not known about.
Is there a way to save this specific video?
I prefer to stretch with my foam roller post run; it saved me from horrible shin splints. If you don't have a foam roller, I highly recommend getting one. Great stretching, for both before and after a run.
What is the error in the Iband stretch? Just so I know...thanks...
I'm with NancySinatra - the IT band stretch has an error in it.
I always stretch after every run - for more than 25 years now. I especially like the one for IT bands. DH calls it my "stripper on the lamppost" posture. Thanks coach N for some new ideas.
Thank you Coach Nicole for the stretching exercises even though I can't run, they are very helpful to begin any exercises. I find I can't do with my left leg what I can do with my right. But I push as much as I can.
Thank you so much! My leg feel so much better!
