Morning Stretches

Updated: Dec 27, 2022

When we wake up in the morning, the last thing we ever think of is to stand up and do some morning stretches however they are really important, especially if you are training a few times a week - trust me I have walked around extremely stiff before! Instead of hitting the snooze button in the morning, try to take the extra 10 minutes to stretch.

It is a great way to energise the morning and ease away any stress or tension from the previous day or that funky sleeping position we've all mastered in the night at some point in our lives!

It is important to remember that when you stretch deeply, you should always be warm. Deep stretches are ideal after a morning workout or after a hot shower. If you decide to stretch right out of bed, make sure you stretch more gently to prevent any injuries.

Here are a few stretches I would recommend for you all to do in the mornings... Just simply get into the stretches slowly and hold for 30 seconds, relax and repeat - I would always advise to repeat these approximately 6-8 times. Over time you can also watch how far you can push yourself in these stretches as you will also notice your flexibility increase!

Let me know how you get on, and remember they are static stretches - so no jumping around! Also think about your breathing in these exercises as that will be the key to relaxation and allowing your body to flex how you wish it to do so!

Until next time you flexible bunch!
