A3. Calf stretch 30 s per leg.
A4. Single-leg “head to toe” stretch ~20 s per leg.
A5. Crossed legs butt stretch ~20-30 s per side.

Repeat A1-A5 twice.

B1.  Table ~ 5 repetitions playing with hold times
B2.  Pike on ground, ease into and hold maximum stretch,
playing with hold time 10-30 s
B3. Cobra repetitions, ~ 5 playing with hold times

Repeat B1-B2 twice, always finish with Cobra or Table.
