There is a reason it’s called ‘The World’s Greatest’ stretch. It’s relatively simple and targets multiple areas of the body, especially the ones we tend to overuse sitting at a desk all day – and it takes less than 5 minutes to complete.
Since it’s a dynamic stretch with static components, it can be used as part of your dynamic warm-up to prep for your workout, or at the end of a session. You can move in and out of each position for desired reps, or added bonus, maintain each position for one breath cycle. Start with 6-8 reps on each side.
Can’t touch your elbow to the floor? No problem, either go as low as you can use a support, i.e. yoga block.
