5 Stretches that 99.9% of People SHOULD be Doing

HI Guys, This week we are looking into Stretches. Stretching is something that is overlooked when it comes to training. It’s something we know we SHOULD do, but most of us don’t. The thing is, that the more you stretch, the more MOBILE you are and the better you MOVE. If you MOVE better, you can train better, which gives you BETTER  RESULTS! Make sense?

We are going to look at 5 main Stretches: Hips, Quads, Glutes, Lower Back and Chest .

If you spend a lot of time at a desk, then you probably suffer from tight hips, chest and glutes. You DEFINITELY need to be doing these:
