Stretch your way to health & happiness
Enjoy optimal results from your stretches with these tips:
- No time for a proper daily stretch or yoga session? Do several short dynamic stretching sessions during the day. If you're limited in time, concentrate on the most commonly strained areas, such as the neck and shoulders, thighs, hamstrings, and calves.
- If you do static stretching, warm up the muscles first by doing 10 minutes of light cardio exercises. You should spend a total of 60 sec on each stretching exercise. If you can hold a particular stretch for 15 sec, repeat it three more times.
