Stretching is important to the body and your joints. I deal with people everyday that are plagued with pain due to lack of stretching. Over time, and continual stretching, I have seen someone who can barely walk up the stairs, jog up them with ease. Never underestimate the importance of lengthening out your muscles!
- Stand in front of a wall with your feet together. Place your hands on the wall shoulder-width apart.
- Rock your weight back on your heels without locking your knees, so your toes get pulled off the ground. Reach your bum out as far as you can by lengthening through your spine. Tuck your chin to feel a deep stretch in the back of your neck.
- Stay here for thirty seconds and then shift your weight forward, placing your toes back on the ground.
