Shaolin Kung Fu Stretches & Moves : Side Stretch for Shaolin Kung Fu
Now let me introduce you to the second stretch,
side stretch. I’m going to show you three different ways how you can perform a side
stretch. And, of course practicing side stretch regularly will enable you to build a more
flexible hamstring. And, of course you can do the splits in the future. Ok. So, let’s
get on with the side stretch. One, same as the forward stretch. The only difference than
the forward is your bending your body to the side. Two-three-four-five-six-seven-eight-nine-ten.
Switch sides. One-two-three-four-five-six-seven-eight-nine-ten. To challenge yourself a little bit more, you’re
going to cross arms and touch your toes. One-two-three-four-five-six-seven-eight-nine-ten. Switch. One-two-three-four-five-six-seven-eight-nine-ten.
The third way I
do a side stretch, is go down all the way into a lunge. Then press, one-two-three-four-five-six-seven-eight-nine-ten.
Switch sides. One-two-three-four-five-six-seven-eight-nine-ten. Same thing. Now, you can pull your toes up.
One-two-three. Put both hands on your knees. One-two-three-four-five-six-seven-eight. Switch.
One-two-three-four-five-six-seven-eight. Ladies and gentlemen, this concludes the side stretch.
