The Rejuvenate Stretching Sequence
The Rejuvenate Stretching Sequence will help stretch your entire body through static compression holds and deep tissue massage techniques. For each body position you will roll the length of your muscle in search of trigger points. Attack each trigger point with 15-20 second static holds followed by 1-3 inch rolls. Refer to the training video to get comfortable with each muscle group.
