Curriculum

Section 1: Getting Started
02:56

This Welcome video orients you to the program and provides some important "Do's" and "Don'ts" that will help you get the most out this course.

03:00

This breathing exercise will assess if you're breathing properly and give you some techniques for a more full breath that will greatly enhance this stretch program.

Section 2: Calves
09:24

This lecture covers the proper techniques for stretching your calves which is the beginning muscles to stretch in order to touch your toes and as this muscle loosens you're able to feel the stretch in the bigger muscle groups. Also this muscle, once stretched and flexible will greatly ease foot & heal pain.

Section 3: Hamstrings
04:23

This section is focused on stretching your hamstrings which are not only a primary muscle for being able to touch your toes, but also a very important muscle once stretched and flexible it will greatly relieve knee and back pain.

Hamstring Stretches II
07:33
Hamstring Stretches III
02:59
Section 4: IT Bands
07:02

This little talked about fascia band controls the knee and the hip. Once this is loosened not only touching your toes becomes easier, but frees up movement of the knee and hip joint, big time!

IT Band Stretches II
03:54
IT Band Stretches III
04:07
Section 5: Glutes
07:30

This section concentrates on the glute muscles of which there are three. These are the controlling and most powerful muscles in the body, and stretching these will improve lower & and upper back pain, hip pain, knee pain and overall tightness in the hips. As well as helping you along the way to touch your toes, of course.

Glute Stretches II
09:38
Section 6: Quads
04:10

This section is focused on stretching your quads which are located on the front of your legs. This being another big muscle group once stretched will improve your over all knee tightness, pain or other knee discomfort, and take you one step closer to touching your toes.

Quad Stretches II
04:12
Section 7: Lower Back
11:36

Our last lecture covers the lower & mid back. Once you've stretched all the other muscle groups, this will allow you to deepen the stretch in your lower & upper back, like the last piece of a puzzle. This usually releases a lot of pain and tightness people feel across their back. This is also the final step of this program to be able to touch your toes. Repeat this entire program as necessary, and you too will be touching your toes in no time!

Instructor Biography

Maarten Van Nus, Founder of Boomer Body Fitness, Personal Trainer

Hi my name is Maarten Van Nus and I'm the founder of Boomer Body Fitness.

I have been training and studying the human body since 1975, and in all this time i have trained and helped hundreds of people push their bodies and minds through their self made limitations to achieve their own personal fitness and health goals. Along the way i have authored a book, have spent tens of thousands of hours in the gym using my own body as a test case, to perfect and come up with new and exciting ways to train and isolate muscle groups, along with core , stretching and overall health.

And to this day i don't just talk it, i still live it every day, still testing and coming up with new ways of making the human body the best it can be.

I have trained everyone from housewives to athletes, from weekend gym warriors to semi pro bodybuilders. I not only train the body but have a unique ability to bring the mind into play so that you can begin to achieve that desired result not only on the outside but the deep belief to hold it there on the inside .

They say it takes ten thousand hours to become a master at anything, well i surpassed that long ago that is why I’ve been called a master, a guru, a triple phd if you will, when it comes to training the human body.

So let all my years of training and experience help you to achieve becoming the best you can be.
