I love me a good workout, but there have been many times when I have sidelined the stretches and paid for it later!
How to: Start off by standing with your legs wider than shoulder width apart. Begin to transfer your weight onto one side by resting your arms on the thigh of the opposite leg you are stretching.
If you are not feeling the stretch, take your legs out wider at the starting position and go lower to the floor.
Now you: Hold the stretch for 30-60 seconds on each side. Always remember to breathe - we hold the stretch and not our breathe!! X
