IT BAND MOBILITY STRETCH
Follow along with Andrew Dettelbach for some quick tips on how to properly perform MonkeyFeet hollow body holds. Please use a weight that is most comfortable for you.
Got a huge stretch for the IT band here, it’s specifically going to be stretching out the TFL Muscle on the side of the hip, which connects into the IT band. So you’re going to start with your arms out to your side, the leg is going straight up, use a light weight, or no weight at all. From here you're going to slowly lower that weight down to your side, trying to keep it at the height of your hip, take a couple deep breaths, you can let that leg relax if you need to or for more intensity hold it up off the ground, and then slowly lift it back up to the starting position and repeat. Do this slowly, a few repetitions, it's best to do this after you’re already warmed up, you've done maybe your workout already and you're just doing this as a cool down.
