Reformer Long Stretch - Wrist Issues

Length: 0:05:10

Reformer Long Stretch is an excellent exercise to work the push up or plank position. Neutral spine and shoulder girdle strength is important for safety and proper muscle engagement.

Many of us have wrist issues that make planks and Long Stretch uncomfortable on the wrist and forearms. This student has never done Long Stretch before and wants to find out how to achieve the benefits of the exercise without wrist strain. We have put a box between the carriage and standing platform. We begin on a red spring and then try the blue spring. Both are beneficial. Try both spring resistances and let me know which you prefer and why! Email me at with your feedback.
