Stretch out your whole lower body in just 3 minutes with this video!
Love these, they feel so good!
Great! Thanks for this one!
I appreciate how short this video is. It motivated me to take action.
I do these too. But as usual, you have added something that I was missing. Thanks, Coach!
I tied not that flexible yet though.
Hi, l enjoyed the stretch. Thanks
Coach Nicole is simply the best!!!
She is great,love all her videos,I do so many of them,love this one also!!!!
She is fantastic and a great instructor. Love the exercise. I just can't believe that someone suggested giving her a tissue. Blew me away!! Then again, I guess there's always someone who will criticize.
Can you give a variation for people who have hip replacement. The replaced hip can't go less than 90 degrees with the body. Thanks
Great stretches for beginners like me! Thanks!
Idid the 3 minute leg stretchingt and felt good
I love spark people and Nicole, but can anyone PLEASE give her a tissue.
She is always sniffling while explaining her exercises.
I would like her to hold stretches longer too. What's the rush?
I'm 66 and have been doing these stretches for several years. I found that the knee/chest stretch aggravates my low back pain. Instead, I "march" my knees to my chest, alternating knees. Circling the extended leg from the hip, one direction and then the other direction, helps loosen the joint.
