15 Stretching Exercises You’ll Love!

A few weeks ago we found an easy and effective flexibility routine that we wanted to share so we published an article about how great flexibility exercises are for losing weight. We shared it because we printed it, and follow along for our stretching workout.

After using that picture for a few weeks I began to realize that  sharing the picture was not enough. The more I followed along, the more I wanted to be sure I had the right placement of my hands and feet and how long I should be holding the position shown. Truthfully, to get the full benefit of these exercises, we all need to know how to do them.

    1. Thank you for teaching me a new word – karateka. Karate takes a lot of discipline – if you can split then you must be very flexible as well! That is wonderful!
