Tia-Clair Toomey has been crowned the Fittest Woman on Earth for the past 6 years in a row, so you can definitely learn a thing or two from her, including her everyday stretches. Check out what she does every day before training to keep her mobility in check.
The most dominant athlete ever to compete in CrossFit decided to share her everyday stretches. Earlier last month, Toomey shared a video explaining what she does to maintain her mobility at a high level, something every athlete needs to look out for to stay in the best shape.
Toomey Everyday Stretches
Her stretches are very focused on ankle mobility and posture. See the video or read below how to do each everyday stretch from the Fittest Woman on Earth.
Tia begins with a traditional ankle and leg stretch. She lunges forward with her knee resting on the yoga mat, shifting the knee forward past the toes, she can also put her body weight on top of the quad that is being stretched for additional pressure. Hold this position for 30-120 seconds on one leg and then shift to the other one.
Following that, again in a lunge position, Tia-Clair Toomey stretches her hip flexor by having the front knee over the ankle and the back knee positioned further back. Let your hip sink to the ground and feel the stretch.
For the upper body, Tia-Clair Toomey everyday stretches focus, firstly, on the front delts and upper chest. Lay prone on the mat with one arm extended and roll your back as though you would fall onto the extended arm.
Lastly, move to a child’s pose to stretch the lats. Lean forward with your arm outstretched to feel the pull in your targeted muscles.
And simple as that, those are the movements Tia-Clair Toomey practices on her everyday stretches. Give it a go. It should not take longer than a couple of minutes to pump some blood into your muscles and awaken them for your training session.
