I really enjoyed this sequence. I'm not very flexible, but I could follow along easily and I feel great afterwards. This will be a favourite!

I tend to get really tight right before bed in all of the 'problem spots'. I run practically everyday, but doing this right before bed really loosens me up so I can sleep better!

Good morning stretch.

Kristina B

I do this before my run and I do not tighten up.

Suellen B

Nice stretch for everybody!
