Stretching is so important to keep your muscles and joints pliable. If you never make time to stretch, think of stretching as a workout. That is what I have had to do. I factor in an extra 10 minutes before and after my main workout to stretch. I also utilize a foam roller, it is so incredibly painful but it helps so much.
Try and hold each stretch for about 20 to 30 seconds. Breathe into it. you will feel your muscle tight and then it will release – that’s what you want! The more you incorporate the stretching the more flexible you will become. You also reduce the risk of injury by stretching.
Here are the moves:
1) Cobra Stretch
2) Quad and Hip Flexor Stretch
3) Straight Leg Ham Stretch
4) IT Band Stretch
5) Low Back Reverse Stretch
6) Twisted Back Reverse Stretch
7) Seated Glute Stretch
8) Seated Chest Opener
9) Doorway Chest Opener
10) Shoulder and Triceps Stretch
11) Deep Triceps Stretch
