Rosey's Bikini Body Challenge Day 9: Stretching

By KATE MORAWETZ

Exercise 9: Stretching

Since all you bikini body challengers have been doing such a great job, we thought that we'd help you start your relaxing weekend with a little stretching.

This exercise is great for anyone to do, as stretching is an important part of our daily exercise routines, but it's also a special way for any new moms out there to bond with their baby in a calm and relaxing environment.

So finding a comfortable area on the floor, sit with your legs in a V shape with baby - if you have - in the middle.   Now simply stretch forward and try to reach your baby making sure to exhale.  Try to bring yourself down with every stretch and if you'd like to add on, you can pulse ever so gently.   You should feel this in your hamstrings and the back of your legs.

   

Step 1                                                      Step 2                                                       Step 3
