Engage in These Seated Stretch Exercises at Your Workstation

The initial segment of the latest show Good Stretch features Brian Spencer, a Pilates instructor from East River, leading individuals through a stretching regimen that many have longed for: seated exercises suitable for various settings, whether on a crowded plane or at your desk. These exercises target the hips, neck, shoulders, and the vital piriformis muscle near your glutes. If you’ve been yearning for some seated relaxation stretches, the debut episode of Good Stretch is sure to meet your expectations.

To begin, Spencer demonstrates a variation of the cat and cow stretch that can be immensely beneficial if your muscles are fatigued. He then instructs gently pulling on your head to stretch the upper trapezius muscle, aiding in alleviating tight shoulders and neck discomfort.

Afterward, Spencer guides you to cross your legs and lean for a deep stretch targeting the hips and piriformis muscle. The piriformis, a minor muscle located in the buttocks along the largest nerve in the lower body, can become irritated, inflamed, or tense, leading to pressure on this prominent nerve. This often transpires after prolonged periods of sitting, making this stretch valuable for preventing or easing any discomfort.

Witness the remarkable results of Spencer’s five-minute stretch routine. For this exercise regimen, you require no additional equipment, except for possibly considerate plane travelers who won’t doze off on your shoulder. Tune in and allow Spencer to lead you through the process.
