Prone Frog exercise

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text el_class=”phone-frog”]Prone frog stretch is a full body stretch. It helps open the whole front part of the body, from the tops of the feet, thighs, groin, hip flexors, abdomen, chest, and even throat (a more advanced part of the stretch).

Some benefits of doing frog pose are:

  • Strengthening back and core muscles.
  • Stimulating organs to improve digestion.
  • Stretching the knees and ankles.
  • Relief of knee, hip and lower back pain.
  • Can help relieve headaches and reduce stress and anxiety.

To begin:

  1. Start on your hands and knees.
  2. Take your knees as wide as your flexibility allows.
  3. Point your toes outwards and open your feet wider than your knees.
  4. To deepen the stretch, move your hips back toward your heels and come down to your forearms.
  5. You can bring your gaze down or slightly forward, just make sure to maintain your neck in neutral alignment with the rest of your spine. *You don’t want your neck bent and hanging low, or your neck extended back with your face looking up to the sky.

Happy Froggin’![/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Request a Complimentary New Patient Consultation” style=”3d” color=”info”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
