Gaining Weight? Try Stretching
If you are like most people, weight gain can be a problem from the time we are born until the day we die. Yes, it usually gets tougher to lose the extra pounds as we get older because we are more sedentary, but weight gain doesn’t discriminate because of age. But the good news is that no matter how young or old you are, stretching has many benefits and if your doctor has approved these stretch-exercises, you can follow them once a week for a full-body stretch. You’ll begin to see results in a few weeks. Yes, a 5 minute warm-up is still recommended before you exercise.
So that you have no excuses, here is a chart of easy-to-do exercises. You can print this image and bring it with you to the gym or hang on your home-gym wall.
