You know you should do it often; you know it feels good when you do it. But you make excuses not to do it.
Are we really in too big of a hurry to stretch? Come on…be honest!
By my calculations, we only need 7 minutes to stretch.
So, for a bare minimum, you can do 30 seconds each side for a total of 1 minute per stretch to knock out:
- Hip Flexor (shown above)
- Back twist
The time we spend stretching will pay dividends in the long run. Tony Horton (the face of P90x) says, “if your flexibility is bad now, it’s only going to get worse as time passes.” That’s his pitch for EVERYONE to do yoga, and you can’t really argue with it. The least we can do is stretch, right?!Tweet this!
