Simple Ways to Stretch RIGHT NOW:
Thank you all for the email requests- We are working diligently to answer every single one of them over as much time as it takes. Recently, a young lady emailed asking if we can compile a simple 2 minute stretching routine that anyone can do, regardless if they are at the office or in a gym.
Regardless where you are, I want you to try this simple routine right now. In just 2 minutes, watch how simple it can be to stimulate endorphins and feel more alert and more productive in very little time at all. First, start off by standing up nice and tall, feet together touching, very slight bend of knees (almost locked out, but not quite), then…
1. Bend down and try to touch your toes. Hold for 10 seconds. Repeat 3 times.
2. Next- stand tall, arms out to the side- bring your right knee to your chest, hold for 3 seconds. Now your left knee for 3 seconds, then your right, then your left, then right, then left…. then DONE!
4. Lastly- stand tall again. This time, take your heels off the ground by pushing up on the balls of your feet! This is called a calf raise. Hold for 3 seconds. Repeat 10 times.
You just spent 2 minutes stretching/exercising! How do you feel? My guess is you gave yourself a little turbo-charge and feel better than you did before you did this routine.
