Flexibility Challenge

May 18, 2017

 

If you're like me and you love to run but also do other activities like yoga, ballet, barre, HIIT workouts, Maiah made-up workouts, etc, then you know how important flexibility is.  Oh you don't?  Well, even if you're just a person that walks, breathes and lives then yes, flexibility is a must.  Follow along with me to reduce pain and joint discomfort, increase your range of motion and recover from muscle soreness faster.

 

 FLEXIBILITY CHALLENGE

 

Your flexibility will increase if you follow along, I promise!

 

Follow me on Instagram @runninggirlhealth & use #RunGirlHealth in your fitness or stretching post for a chance to win a Running Girl Health treat bakery book!

 

Click each day to go to a new flexibility workout.  Do this ideally after a workout and at least after a 15 minute warm-up. Even after one week you WILL feel and notice a difference.  Stick with it for two or more weeks and you'll really see change: you'll achieve splits (or at least very close to it) and more mobility in your joints.

* note: obviously I'm not a doctor and I don't know you, so get permission from your doc to do these stretches and workouts, and if something hurts not just minor discomfort, then don't do it. *
