7 muscle groups to stretch out everyday

How old are you?

One of my yoga teacher kept telling us we were as young as our spine was flexible.

Not only does stretching cut muscle soreness but it also improves flexibility and range of motion, helps reduce risk of injuries and gets your circulation flowing, which makes you more alert, think more clearly and leaves you feeling refreshed.

BONUS: it doesn’t require any equipment and can be done in no time, almost anywhere.

You want to stretch these principal muscle groups everyday:

  • Neck;
  • Chest and biceps;
  • Triceps;
  • Harmstrings;
  • Quads;
  • Back;
  • Hips and glutes.

Make it a habit to stretch out everyday, may I add at least 3 times a day. It doesn’t have to take long at all. For example, upon waking up and before stepping into your steamy shower in the morning, when going to the bathroom at work, while watching tv or before stepping into bed at night. Just make it a habit to stretch some part of your body whenever you can. It feels so good!

Print this “stretch chart” as a reminder to get started and do start today! You’ll be glad you did:)

To your success and health,

Patricia
