Stretching After a Walk

In this video Julie Pascoe shows several stretches you can do after exercising. Recently, the consensus has been that you should only stretch when your muscles are warm-up or after your workout.

She does stretches for:

  • Hamstrings (back of thigh) - she shows this both seated and standing
  • Quads (front of thigh) - she shows you how to do this one standing or seated as well. I recommend you do the sitting version as the standing one can be pretty challenging.
  • Calves (back of the lower leg) - these muscles are used quite a lot when walking and can often be pretty tight after a walk.
  • Upper back - this looks like you're hugging yourself
  • Chest - a great stretch for an often tight area

Try each stretch for about 30 seconds.
