Follow along with this 10-minute stretch routine after your next workout! Whether you’ve just completed a HIIT workout, total-body strength, or a cardio workout, this stretch workout is the best way to actively cool down your muscles. Designed to relieve tight muscles and ensure your body is ready to move again tomorrow, this workout is for all fitness levels.

Here is why stretching is so important:

  • Injury prevention
  • Increases range of motion
  • Improves performance

While training and exercising is important for our bodies, stretching keeps our muscles flexible and helps prevent injury. As athletes (and yes, we are all athletes if we move our bodies) we need to recover as hard as we train. Join trainer Sam Cameranesi as she leads you through a new stretching routine with some exercises you may have never tried before. Tight hamstrings? She’s got you covered. Tight quads? Yup, we’ve got that covered too! In just 10 minutes, you will learn new stretching exercises and proper tips and tricks on how to perform each movement.

Remember, stretching at times can feel “uncomfortable,” however, it should never be painful. If you feel pain while stretching, pull back and decrease your range of motion. Over time, your muscles will adapt and increase your overall range of motion. So the next time you finish your workout, take the extra 10 minutes to properly cool down your muscles. The trainers at Get Healthy U TV are here not only to help you workout hard, but we are also here to help you recover so you can come back stronger tomorrow! Pair this with our Total Body Stretch 2 video for another way to stretch the body post-workout!

    Thanks for all the stretch videos!! Is it possible to create a complete body stretch video that actually holds each stretch for at least 30 seconds? 45 to 60 would be great too :) Thanks for your consideration.

    I did Serious Strength Total Body yesterday, and I can barely move today, so someone suggested this video. For side stretch, I could only go as far as my knees :D By the time I finished though, I felt a little more flexible and in a little less pain! For customer service, I want to let you know that on the Description page, there is a link for Total Body Stretch 2, but it brings us to the "How to do a Double Leg Stretch" video instead!
