10 Minute Daily Stretching Routine

Hey Ladies! Many of you may not know, but outside of blogging, I am also an athletic trainer. One of the most important lessons that I try to instill in my student-athletes is the importance of stretching. Stretching allows the muscles to stay flexible and keeps joints mobile. Have you ever noticed how stiff your hip can get after sitting for extended periods? I know I have. Especially with our current stay home orders, I find myself lounging on my couch for hours which leaves my hamstrings tight and my low back feeling stuck.

Long story short, COVID-19 has me feeling achy, sore, and overall OLD hahaha.

…..and I know I’m not alone lol..

I realized that I should practice what I preach and start stretching daily.

I created this simple morning routine that should take you no more than 10 minutes to complete.
