Stretch Your Upper Body

It is very important to have a stretching routine for any workout. If you will be running or having a leg routing at the gym, then you should be stretching out the front of your legs and calves.

Knee up stretching exercise:

  • You can get started with your feet together
  • Lift one knee and grab it with both hands.
  • If you do not have a good balance then you can hold onto a chair.
  • Keep your back straight while you do this exercise.
  • Hold your knee for 10 seconds then switch.

Standing Quad stretching exercise:

This exercise is important in warming up the large muscles of the thigh before exercise or sports.

  • Bring your hands behind your back, roll your shoulders down, and gently stretch over.
  • You should feel a nice stretch down the back of the legs and a nice stretch in the biceps, opening up your chest.

Tricep stretching exercise:

  • If you’ve been doing shoulder work, bring one arm across the other.

Wrist stretching exercise:

An excellent and recommended exercise for musicians and those who work in front of a computer and need to plug away at their computers on a regular basis.

  • If you’ve been doing any arm work, biceps, just stretch out the wrists. And of course your triceps. Pull gently on the opposing elbow.

Important recommendations:

  • Be gentle with every move.
  • Hold for a few seconds and then repeat.
