Couch Butt Stretch

Americans sit a lot. A LOT. We’re sitting an average of 10 hours each day according to a Washington Post study and a published article on the subject. That’s more than 80% of our waking hours. Remaining in a seated position for that long- whether in a chair, on the ground or on the couch- tends to cause stiffness and cramping of the major muscles throughout your body. Our butt stretch is designed to increase blood flow and decrease the amount of tension build-up after a long day of sitting. This one is a great exercise to do just before bed, and the best part is it’s only recommended to hold and stretch this position for ten-second intervals.
