FGL Stretch Break! Post-Bike Ride (or anytime) Stretch
The Stretch Break! is back after a summer hiatus. A new stretch will be posted each Wednesday. In this Stretch Break! I demonstrate four simple stretches for the chest & shoulders, hamstrings, quads and lower back. Perfect for after a bike ride (or anytime, really). This video is slightly longer than previous clips, but still less than 10 minutes. I often talk to runners, bikers and other athletes who spend so much time on their sport they leave little time to stretch. Stretching helps ease tension in tight muscles, saving you from injury and keeping you strong and healthy.
Whether you are a biker or just need to stretch the muscle groups demonstrated in this video, I hope you give your body some love and a stretch! It just feels good.
As always, these are informational videos, designed for the average healthy adult. Always consult your physician before starting this or any other movement based exercise.
