Flexibility is an important part of any exercise program and stretching should be included at the end of every workout.

Start by facing the wall that your arm is pressed against. Take a turn away from your arm and the wall to get a deep stretch. See photos below...

MaryBeth, our trainer of the month, has given us some advice to get you going further faster!
Gentle consistency will get you further faster with your lifestyle goals in the beginning. If you can’t squat to the chair the next day because you're sore you may never come back, I want you to come back feeling good ready to move again. You also have to take the time to develop the small, deep muscles of the body. I have not worked with anyone who blew a quad picking up their child, but their back is another story.
