Two-person Stretching: Twice as Nice
One great partner stretch is the following:
- Lie on your back and lift one leg as far as you comfortably can on your own.
- Your partner then places his or her hand against your calf and applies gentle pressure, as if to push your leg back a bit further.
- You resist the pressure by pressing your leg against your partner's hand.
- In resisting this pressure, your muscles contract and relax and in relaxing, the muscles are able to stretch a bit further.
