Seated Leg Cradle Stretch For Glutes

Take a Break, but Get Stretching

It might be another rest day in our Just Press Play workout plan, but we have a great stretch to share with you. After doing a little light cardio — take a 20-minute walk or a 10 minute jog — try this seated leg cradle to stretch your glutes.

  • Sit on your mat cross-legged or with your feet touching each other. Lift up your left leg, and hook your calf over your left arm. Grab onto your feet with your hands for support.
  • Slowly lift up your left leg until you feel a stretch in your glutes and hips. You can gently rock your leg from side to side to move the stretch to different parts of the muscle.
  • Hold for 30 seconds, and then switch legs.
