The world’s greatest stretch


We found the secret top trainers swear by to target every muscle group in 3 minutes flat.

stretchBy Kori Malyszek for Q.Equinox.com

Every top trainer, strength and conditioning coach, or elite athlete who has been in the game for a while knows “The World’s Greatest Stretch,” or WGS. I have been working as a strength and conditioning specialist for almost 10 years, training and rehabbing fitness clients and athletes, and this is absolutely my favorite stretch. It’s sort of legendary.

It is so beloved because it targets every major muscle in the body—especially the ones we tend to overuse sitting at a desk or a computer all day—and it takes less than 5 minute to complete. Since it’s a dynamic stretch with static components, it can be used as part of your dynamic warm up, to prep your body for your workout, or at the end of a session.

This combination of movement and static positions challenges the central nervous system, forging the connection between the body and the brain that is so crucial to an effective session. When the connection is made, muscles fire properly, so you make the most of every movement and are much less likely to get injured. Plus, this synchronization of movement increases your range of motion, so each exercise can be completed thoroughly.
