TOTAL BODY STATIC STRETCH ROUTINE
Stretch it out, girl!! Flexibility is an important component of fitness that many of us neglect in place of higher-intensity exercise. This routine will give you a full-body stretch that is perfect post-workout or as a stand-alone recovery sequence. If you don't have access to a ballet barre, you can hold onto a countertop or chair (just be sure the chair won't move!!).
How To Do This:
- Perform each of the following stretches for 30 seconds each, then repeat.
- Stretch to a point in the stretch that causes slight discomfort and tension, not pain. If you feel any pain in your muscles, ease your way back on the stretch. If you feel any sharp pain in any of your joints when performing these stretches, consult a doctor.
