In this article, we'll mainly focus on stretching as a warm-up for your muscles. Doing these exercises before every workout will give you better results because well-stretched muscles will contract better! The various stretches given here will help you sustain physical activity and limit the risk of injuries such as tendinitis or pulled muscles. With a bit of practice, you'll start to notice an improvement in your posture too!
These stretches are meant to be done together as a series. We suggest repeating the entire series three times in a row. For each exercise, remember to breathe as you stretch. When holding the stretch, breath slowly and calmly. Hold each stretch for 15 to 20 seconds.
Tips from Domyos Club Coach Emilie:
Inhale and raise your arms above your head. Exhale and release your arms. Repeat 5 times in total.
Inhale and raise your arms above your head as you rise up on to your toes, exhale, then relax and lean your upper body forwards. Repeat 3 times in total.
Inhale and raise your arms above your head, rise up on to your toes and completely relax and fold forwards. Slowly roll back up, one vertebra at a time.
At the end of the circuit, lean your head to the right, then to the left, and make two complete circles with your head in each direction. Roll your shoulders backwards a few times. And that's it - you're all ready for your workout!
