How to Stretch the Sides of Your Torso

Stretch It: Standing Side Stretch

I love a good hamstring or hip stretch, but for some reason, stretching my sides feels so amazing. That's probably because I rarely stretch this area, so here's an easy way to target the sides of your torso.

For more detailed instructions

.

  • Stand with your feet hip distance apart, and your arms by your sides.
  • Bend your right knee slightly and raise your left arm overhead. Slowly slide your right hand down your right thigh toward your knee. Put weight into your right hand as you lean your torso to the right. Press your left hip out to the side and reach up with your left arm to increase the stretch in the left side of your torso. Try opening the space between your left ribs with a couple of deep inhales.
  • Stay here for 30 seconds and then do this stretch on the right side.
