[Video] Cool Down & Stretch Routine

As we discussed on Tuesday, flexibility and stretching are an important part of your fitness routine - or at least, they should be!

Stretching after a workout can help prevent soreness, cool down your muscles, and finish off your workout on the right foot.

This stretch routine can also be done anytime you are feeling tight and need to improve your flexibility. If you're feeling extra tired and can't handle a strenuous workout, why not do this one instead? It will help to relax you, relieve stress, and improve flexibility and posture.

These are active stretches, so you will be moving fluidly from one movement into another at a slow pace to help your muscles relax and lengthen. You will do 8 repetitions of 9 different flexibility exercises. 

No equipment is required, though you may want a yoga mat for some of the exercises.
