#BOSUStrong Week 3 - My 5 Fave Stretches and 3 Tips for Toning Your Body!

I can’t believe its already week 3 of the #BosuStrong challenge, time flies when  you’re having fun! Last week we focused on balance and I was proud of myself for improving my balance. This week its all about stretching and toning – so make sure you join in on the fun! 

Since we’re talking about stretching here are 5 of my all time favorite stretches:

  • I love to stretch my legs by doing pigeon pose.
  • My favorite total body stretch is down dog.
  • I swear when I do 3-legged down dog, it feels like my hips are opening finally.
  • I stretch my mind by closing my eyes and taking in the smells and sounds around me.
  • I try to stretch out of my comfort zone with camel pose.

And if you’re looking for a great way to tone your legs, here are my fave 3 tips (tricks, advice, words of wisdom, etc):

* lunges are your friend

* squat as much as possible

* stretch, stretch, stretch
