2. Forward fold
This stretch is the ultimate full body stretch. It’s ideal for office workers who spend too much time sitting at a computer. This will stretch the legs and hamstrings. It’s also a chest and shoulder opening exercise.
Equipment needed: none
Muscles worked: hamstrings, shoulders, low back, chest
Stand with your feet hip-width apart, toes pointing forward.
Reach your hands behind you to meet behind your glutes. Interlace your fingers, if possible.
Keeping a flat back, bend at the waist, shifting your hips backward and weight in your heels until you feel a stretch down the back of your legs.
As you bend forward, let gravity pull your arms above your head, keeping your arms straight. Only go as far as your shoulder flexibility will allow. Hold this position for 30 seconds.
