The Best 'Quickie' Stretch for Moms


At 30-something-ish, I never thought my body would feel so geriatric. I mean, I don't even know how to play mahjong (yep, I'm behind the curve), though I do carry a cane so that I can shake it at teenagers while spouting off sage, but somewhat confusing advice, like: "Never bike against traffic, it's bad for your pancreas."

Frankly, I'm getting tired of reaching around in the car to grab a drink/toy/video game from one of my children, only to find I've pulled out my back/shoulder/neck. You see, I used to be more "bendy." In the old days I could bend over without hearing the snap, crackle, pop of my rickety vertebrae. Yes, I was young, once. Though my mind tells me I'm no more than 25, my body begs to differ.

Which is why I called in the big guns for this week's episode of The Jenny Isenman Show: Rob Sulaver, trainer to the stars and founder of Bandana Training to give us a quickie morning stretch that any mom can do. You know, so we won't have to pop things back into place later in the day.

On a side note -- I've been doing it for about a month now and I LOVE it!

Also, my trainer, who is super cute, meets my barista, who is total mommy porn. So, it's worth watching, even if you're on your couch eating Cheetos and have no intention of ever stretching anything -- other than your "scrolling" finger!

Here it is:
