Maintenance Monday: Superhero Stretch

Superhero Stretch - maintenance monday

On #maintenancemonday,  I try to give you a little something wonderful to do for your body! We spend enough time bashing ourselves (and others) around, that it’s important to remember to take a little time for maintenance.

I’ve been using this move to warm up my teams, and in my own off-skates training sessions, for about a year now. It’s a really fabulous many-in-one move that gets your hips, back, and chest all opened up in a jif!

Superhero Stretch

So I’m calling it a stretch because “Superhero Mobilisation” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it… let’s call it a dynamic stretch for short, meaning, it’s a great thing to do before exercise.

When to do this: After warming up with some light cardio activity for 3-5 minutes, before a practice or workout.

Sets/Reps: Try 5 reps each side, alternating. Remember, you twist twice per side for one rep.

  1. Thank you for taking the time to create all these videos and allow access to those who are not your members. You are a great inspiration for fitness and better skating skills. I love skating and exercise but am not part of our local roller derby team.
