Inch Worms

0 min read

20 Nov 2020



The inch worm has the ability to strengthen and stretch different muscle groups at the same time. Stand tall, your feet roughly hip-distance apart. Take a breath in, then as you exhale, look down at the ground and start reaching your hands toward the floor in front of your feet, allowing your back to bend forward. Allow your knees to bend slightly


Step 1

Place your hands on the floor in front of your feet

Step 2

Inhale and walk your hands forward, one at a time, allowing your heels to lift off the floor as your body begins to straighten ahead

Step 3

When your hands are directly under your shoulders, you should be in a full plank position with your core, chest, quads, triceps, and shoulders engaged, your body forming a straight line from heels to head

Step 4

Keep your legs relatively straight and begin walking your feet forward, one at a time, toward your hands

Step 5

This should provide a nice stretch through your hamstrings, calves, and glutes as your hips start lifting toward the ceiling

Step 6

Exhale as you step forward

Step 7

Stop when your feet are as close to your hands as you can comfortably bring them

Step 8

You can bend your knees slightly to ease the stretch on your hamstrings, but try to keep them as straight as possible

Step 9

Return to the starting position by straightening your body

Step 10

Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
