Mobility

Split Stretch

The Split Stretch is a comprehensive stretching exercise that primarily benefits the lower body, targeting areas such as the thighs and hips. This movement helps to greatly increase flexibility and improve range of motion, especially for athletes or individuals involved in activities that require high leg mobility. It's also beneficial for promoting better posture and relieving tension in the lower back and hips.
