Tips for

After a full night’s rest, your joints and muscles are bound to be stiff. If bending over to pick up something is tough on your muscles, you’re probably in need of a good stretch.

Stretching can increase flexibility and range of motion over time, promoting functionality. Start with these muscle groups:

  -  quadriceps (upper front of thigh)
  -  hamstrings (upper back of thigh)
  -  lower back
  -  forearms
  -  upper back
  -  neck

This may seem like a lot to target, but don’t think that you have to spend your whole morning stretching. Research has shown that just a single session increases blood flow, promoting heart health. Increasing blood flow to muscles will also prepare you for your morning exercise.
