10/23/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Saturday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 24. October 2013 16:55



As I am maturing (or some might say…just getting older), I find that my body is less forgiving of the sins of the day before.  I feel more stiff and creaky.  This makes the stretching after cardio even more important.

After the treadmill, or walking outside, stretch out your quads, hamstrings and calves. 

You can stand on one leg, bending the opposing leg behind you toward your bottom, holding the stretch.   Try to do a calf stretch against a step rise or any unmoving rise, one leg at a time.

After using the elliptical, stretch your shoulders, back, quads, hamstrings and calves.

After bike riding, roll your neck, stretch your chest, quads, hamstrings and especially your calves.  Raise your leg up onto a high, stable surface with the other leg up onto a high, stable surface, with the opposing leg firmly engaged on the ground (don’t hyperextend).  Bend forward slowly (engaging your core to protect your back).  Hold the stretch, but don’t bounce.
