Are you feeling tight, like you really need to stretch? Do you have some muscle soreness from working out? Try this easy yet effective stretch routine that can help ease muscle tension and soreness. Remember not to push too hard into a stretch. Stretching should feel good and sometimes may be mildly uncomfortable but never painful.

Remember that a stretch routine like this should be done after a workout or a brisk walk or at the end of the day when your muscles are warm. Stretching is not a good way to warm up for a high intensity workout. Do a warmup before your workout that simulates the movements you’ll be doing in order to prepare your body for activity, exercise or sports.

 Stretching often gets overlooked, but it should be seen as a part of your weekly or daily exercise routine. A great stretch routine like this can ease muscle tension, improve flexibility and range of motion.
