When in doubt, stretch it out — especially after weight work. This quick side arm stretch is a great reset and helps elongate your back and arm muscles, while keeping them pliable.

Duration: 30 seconds, per side

Instructions:

  1. Cross one arm in front of your body, palm in.
  2. Take your other arm and fold it up so it’s hugging your elbow.
  3. Hold, then switch arms. No sweat!

Tomorrow: You can do it, put a squat into it.
