When it comes to exercise, it’s common to think of just lifting the weights or doing the “work,” like a light run or walk. But equally important is how you prepare for your exercise, which means stretching. This often neglected part of any exercise routine not only prepares your joints and muscles for the work ahead, it can keep you loose and limber for more mundane tasks, such as lifting groceries or even just walking up the steps. Join us to see why those soup cans and stretching are equally important parts of any healthy lifestyle.
Before your workout, we recommend the following:
Wear sneakers and have water handy
Have weights, soup cans or bottled water, and a chair for seated exercises
Keep your workout space free from clutter
And remember to go at your own pace!
