Use these feel good stretches to wrap up a workout or simply relieve stress and tension from your entire body. During the stretches, try to relax your body and breathing, inhaling deeply through the nose, exhaling fully out the mouth. Repeat up to 3 times in total. The best stretching easy Workouts to do at Home are :
S: Side bend. Stand with feet hip width, knees slightly bend, arms by sides. Extend left arm overhead and lean to the right, sliding right hand down the outside of right thigh, looking up at left hand. Hold for 10 seconds; repeat on opposite side.
T: Torso wrap. Stand with feet hip width, knees slightly bend, arms by sides. Turn body to the right, lifting left heel off the floor, bending left arm in front of body, right arm behind back, wrapping arms around waist. Turn torso as far to the right as possible, hold for 10 seconds; repeat on opposite side.
R: Runner’s stretch. Balancing on left leg with left knee slightly bent, bend right knee and grab onto right foot with right hand. Extend left arm overhead and squeeze knees together, pressing pelvis forward. Hold onto a wall or sturdy chair with left hand for more balance, if needed. Hold for 10 seconds; repeat on opposite side. This is one of the best easy Workouts to do at Home.
E: Elbows back. Stand with feet slightly wider than hip width, hands behind hips, elbows back behind body. Extend spine, lifting chest to ceiling. Return to start. Slowly repeat up to 10 times.
T: Trunk twist. Lie on back with arms extended out to sides of shoulders, palms pressed against the floor and knees pressed together, bent at 90-degrees over hips. Keeping both shoulder blades in contact with the ground, slowly twist knees to one side, trying to lower legs all the way to the floor if possible. Hold for 30 seconds; repeat on opposite side.
C: Calf stretch. With hands on hips, take a wide step back with right leg, bending left knee so that right heel stays pressed into the floor with right leg straight (make the stretch more intense by stepping further back, less intense by keeping feet closer together). Hold for 30 seconds; repeat on opposite side.
H: Hamstring stretch. With hands on hips, stand on right leg, extending left leg straight in front of body, flexing foot, with left heel pressed into floor. Bend right knee and push hips back, hinging at hips, leaning chest forward (keep back flat, avoid rounding spine). Hold for 30 seconds; repeat on opposite side.
