Hiking puts a heavy load on our leg and hip muscles. Add carrying a pack and you’ve got the perfect recipe for sore muscles.
This practice will help you quickly release areas of tension, refreshing your shoulders, spine, hips, legs, and feet to reduce post-hike aches and pains. It starts with myofascial release on your hardworking feet and quadriceps, then reintroduces free movement in your shoulders and spine. After that you’ll make your way down to the floor to release your hamstrings and glutes, and then finish with a gentle spinal twist.
