Your daily workout regimen remains incomplete without stretching exercises. These exercises help in improving the flexibility of your muscles and prepare you for your regular aerobic or cardiovascular exercises. Performing stretches in the morning prepares you for the long day ahead.
Here are some easy stretches suitable for everyone.
The muscles on the front of the thigh are known as quadriceps. To stretch these muscles, touch a wall or hold a chair for support with your right hand. Pull the left heel upwards and hold the ankle with your right hand. Stay in this position for about 30 seconds. Repeat the stretch with the right leg.
The muscle on the back of the lower leg is the calf muscle. To perform calf stretch, stand about an arm’s length from a wall and place your palms on the wall for support. With your right foot behind your left foot, bend the left knee. Stay in this position for 30 seconds. Repeat the exercise with the other leg.
The muscle on the back of the upper leg is called the hamstring. To stretch the hamstring, with your right hand hold a chair or wall for support and slowly lift your right leg on a bench. You can also do this stretch by lying on the floor and raising the right leg upwards until you experience a stretch at the back of the thigh. Repeat this exercise with the other leg.
With your right hand hold a chair or wall for support. Stand with your legs crossed, the left leg before the right leg. With your left hand above the head bend sideways. Stay in this position for 30 seconds, and then repeat with the other side.
For maintaining the flexibility of the shoulder, place your right palm on your left shoulder and press the right elbow with the left palm. Stay in this position for 30 second and then switch the sides.
