STRETCHING/YOGA

Everyone needs to stretch. Period. It's fundamental in making sure that you stay healthy for as long as possible but also allows you become more flexible. For example, when you're flexible your squats can get deeper and you can get more development out of your leg/squat days. So make sure you stretch well before and after you exercise and at least once a day. Not sure what to do, check out these stretching and yoga sessions.
