so was wondering what are suitable lower body stretches i can do either sitting or lyng down?
also, how long should one be stretching their lower body muscles for?
Hold for no more than 15 seconds, 3 times a day (as recommended by a PT)
This motion is a great exercise, too. (also advised by a PT to me for 2-3 times a week).
At first I couldn't do many in my current state, but now I can do 10.
These days I do the "butterfly stretch" that I learned in PE at school:
Sit, heels together, and just lean forard a little for an inner thigh stretch.
I LOVED this stretch when I could do it: Sit with one leg curled and other leg stretched out behind you.
I learned this one from Deniese Austin's gentla yoga show that was on Lifetime in 2002 or so.
Another great program is "Sit and Be Fit" on PBS.
Check pbs for that or similar programs.
