- Leg swings forward/backwards (Gluteals, hamstrings, hip flexors) - Stand sideways onto the
wall, Weight on your left leg and your right hand on the wall for balance, Swing your right leg
forward and backward, 6 to 10 repetitions on each leg

- Leg swings side to side (Hamstrings, adductors) - Hold on to a solid object and balance on
one leg, Turn your foot on the leg you are balancing on outwards, Swing that leg away from
the body turning the foot to point at the sky, Then swing the leg across the body pointing the
toes in the direction your leg is moving.

- Upper body trunk rotation (Trunk muscles abdominals, back and chest) - Stand with the
back straight and knees slightly bent, Start swinging your body at waist height you should
feel this mostly in your lower back, Move your arms higher to around shoulder height to feel
a stretch through the middle back, Now raise your arms to above your head to feel the
stretch higher in the back

- Bent over upper body rotation (Trunk muscles abdominals, back and chest, adductors,
hamstrings) - Bend at the hips so that your lower back still keeps its natural inward curve
you might need to bend your knees a little, Rotate the trunk and arms to reach towards the
opposite toe while bending that leg, Alternate sides, Reach as low as your flexibility allows
its not necessary to touch the toes if you cant reach that low
