 This wall stretch is one of the very best lower-body stretches for climbers. Lying on the floor eliminates strain on the lower back and allows you to relax and let gravity do the work. Wearing socks can reduce friction between your heels and the wall, helping maximize your range of motion.

 1. Lie on the floor with your buttocks about 6 inches from a wall and your legs extending straight up it, with a 90-degree bend at your hips.

 2. Slowly separate your legs by sliding your heels out to the sides. Concentrate on relaxing throughout your body and allow gravity to extend the split until you feel mild tension in your legs and groin.

 3. Hold this position for ten to twenty seconds.

 4. Try to split your legs farther apart; if needed, grab your thighs to apply some downward pressure to extend the stretch.

 5. Hold this position for thirty to sixty seconds.
