Windmill Stretch
Repeat for each leg/arm

The Windmill Stretch enhances mobility by targeting the hamstrings, obliques, and lower back. Stand with feet wide, hinge at the hips, and reach towards opposite toes.

Starting position

  1. Stand with your feet wider than shoulder-width apart.
  2. Keep your toes pointing forward and arms extended to the sides.


  1. Hinge at your hips and reach your right hand towards your left foot, keeping both legs straight.
  2. Rotate your torso, looking up at your left hand. Feel the stretch along your hamstrings and obliques.
  3. Hold for the duration of the countdown.
  4. Switch sides when prompted, reaching your left hand towards your right foot.
  1. Maintain a slight bend in your knees to avoid overstraining the hamstrings.
  2. Engage your core for stability during the stretch.
  3. Perform the motion with a smooth, controlled movement.
