Stretching Routine To Incorporate Today (Exercises Included)

Most of us sit at office desks, sit at computer screens or are in unnatural positions when performing manual labour throughout the working week.

This leads to tightness in muscles, poor posture, aches and pains in our body.

Incorporating a simple stretching routine into our lives, which will take LESS THAN 5 MINUTES, could benefit us greatly.

This simple routine will have you feeling relaxed, loose, ready for action and can be performed once or twice a day preferably in the morning and evening before bed.

Depending on ability and level of conditioning the time you should hold each stretch for will vary and you will only need to perform each exercise once:

  • Beginner – 10 seconds
  • Intermediate – 20 seconds
  • Advanced – 30 seconds
