Stretching ideas

Please Note: As with all exercise programs, when using our routines, you need to use common sense.  To reduce and avoid injury, you will want to check with your doctor before beginning any fitness program. When performing any fitness exercises, you are performing them at your own risk. Always go at your own pace and what feels comfortable.  Thanks for your understanding.
