Hi, I'm Rachel Shuck, and today I'm going to show you some lower back stretches for runners. Running is a high impact sport and a lot of times our lower back is what absorbs that impact. So in order to kind of loosen that up, I'm going to show you some stretches to work that out. So, we're going to lie on our back, bring your right leg in with your hands clasped over your knee, squeeze it in as far as you can then you are going to drop your right hand, take it out to the side, take your left hand, bring your right knee across the body all the while keeping that right shoulder down and look to your right. You should feel a nice deep stretch in the lower back. Then we'll come back in, release the leg and do the same thing on the other side. The other stretch that we're going to do is very simple. We're going to lay down on our back and you're going to gently hug your knees into your chest as far as you can pull them in while keep breathing and then gently release. So you're going to want to repeat that maybe five to ten times or enough that you start to feel it loosen up and those are some lower back stretches for runners.
