Hey, I’m Jake of Body by Jake and we’ve got an Energizer for you today.It’s a Big Bad Broomstick Stretch. Here we go!
Get our broomsticks in our hands, right. Knees are bent slightly. We’re going to go up in the air first right now. We’re going to stretch up on top left, and bring it to the right. Really get it up high.
So I’m going to bring it up. Nice and easy. There you go and stretch, good. There you go. That’s the way to do it! Good and we’ve got to move our when we’re stretching.
Start out nice and slow, take it at your own pace. Stretching is such an important thing to do. You want to get your body moving, the blood flowing.
Man, we want to get that smile back on your face. This is the way to do it just grab a broom stick. If you don’t have one visualize the broomstick and just use your hands up in the air. Keep it going.
Now we’re going to bring it down a little bit lower and we’re going to come across your body. There we go. Here we go Q let’s do it! Bend your knees and slide to the side. Bend your knees and slide to the side – good.
Come on Andy, here we go. We’re going to lunge! We’re lunging and sliding. That’s it! Lunge and slide. Ah, nice and easy.
This magnificent background, think good positive thoughts. That’s the way to do it. Get the body moving. Feel it the thighs, feel it in that buttisimo. Loosen up that lower back, in the middle part of your back from the stress of the day. We’ll leave the tension in the traps, in the neck. There you go. And now let’s go low, guys!
Here we go low, bring it down and side to side. Side to the side. That’s the way, slide to the side. And what we’re doing here is starting up top, bring it to the middle, coming down low, stretching the hamstrings, right? The old hamsters, the back of the legs, lower back.
Lot of people with lower back challenges – those cranky low backs. Let’s get rid of them right now. Nice and easy perfect. Here we go.
Good job. Bring it up right now. And let’s do a shoulder press. Just a nice, simple shoulder press.
Bring it up and down. Bring it up and down. Love this simple exercise because it really relieves the stress and tension in the traps, the neck area.
Take it at your own pace. Now, we’ll do a little reverse bicep curl, right. Just bring it up and down, perfect! Stomach nice and tight, elbows in close, elbows in close – well done.
I keep going feeling good. Lookin’ good Q, lookin’ good Andy!
