Here is a NEW Challenge for you to try for Seven Whole Days . . .
We all know how important stretching is for our flexibility and joint range of motion. Not to mention it is my favorite part of any exercise class or workout! Nothing feels better than a good stretch - and nothing feels worse than stiff tight muscles! For whatever reason this seems to be the part of a fitness routine that is the first to go out the window. So, I'm joining a few other fitness bloggers out there (Check out Bessbefit.com) and challenging you to stretch every day - yes, that's right EVERY DAY for at least 20 minutes. You can even break the 20 minutes up if that suits. Anything counts, dynamic stretching, foam rolling (one of my favorites), yoga, static stretching, they all count.
You will LOVE how limber and flexible you will feel! It is never too late to begin working on flexibility. I constantly tell my husband he has GOT to stretch or he will not be able to put on his socks when he's 80 . . . and I don't want to do that for him!
And here's a NEW WORKOUT to get your body all warmed up and in need of a good stretch. We did this at my bootcamp class this morning - I'm not sure whether they loved it or hated it, but it got us all moving and sweaty! We went through it twice and finished with more cardio and added more upper body weights, but this is a great "base" to your workout. Give it a try, then finish with a good stretch!
