Piriformis Stretch

Why? Works the piriformis muscle, which is often at the root of sciatic pain.  

How? Sit with the cradles in hand and knees bent. Lift your right ankle on to your left knee. Lean back and hold the pose for 10-20 seconds. Return to the start and repeat on the other side. Try two reps, building to two sets of three reps.

It's great to see an article on the TRX.

Unfortunately this article doesn't do it justice - it is far more than a piece of equipment for recovery after injury! I use it regularly to train with and I am stronger and fitter than I have ever been. I also use it with clients who vary in abilities from complete beginner (I mean complete beginner as in not exercised for many years) to advanced users, the possibilities are so vast!

Just check out some of the video clips on youtube to see for yourself what an amazing workout you can have with a TRX - Oh and one of the things I love most about it is that you can workout outdoors!!!
