With Super Bowl LVI right around the corner, we thought it only fitting to have a pro football player present this edition of Pro Tips!
Nic Demski is a Canadian born, two time CFL Grey Cup Champion (2019, 2021) and slotback for the Winnipeg Blue Blue Bombers. Whether you're a pro athlete on the starting roster or simply looking to improve your personal health and fitness, the importance of stretching can often be overlooked.
In this Pro Tip, Nic shares with us a go-to stretch of his when feeling discomfort of tightness in his hips and quads. As the name suggests, "The Couch Stretch" can be done practically anywhere.
Benefits of the "Couch Stretch" for hip and quad flexibility:
- Relieves tightness and improves hip mobility.
- Improves overall flexibility.
- Alleviates pain in your back, thighs, and knees.
- Activates and strengthens your glutes and core.
- Helps your agility during all types of physical activity.
