Flexibility and Strengthening Exercises
These exercises are useful to get you in shape for more vigorous aerobic exercise or as part of your warm-up and cool-down routines.
The Whole Body Exercise
This exercise is a whole-body stretch. Do it lying on your back. You can start the motion at your ankles as explained here, or reverse the process if you want to start with your arms first.
Point your toes, and then pull your toes toward your nose. Relax.
Bend your knees. Then flatten your knees and let them relax.
Arch your back. Do the Pelvic Tilt. Relax.
Breathe in and stretch your arms above your head. Breathe out and lower your arms. Relax.
Stretch your right arm above your head, and stretch your left leg by pushing away from you with your heel. Hold for a count of ten.
