Hello Angels,

Stretching my not sound exciting part of working out but doing stretching is just important for a well fitness routine as cardio work and weight lifting.

Until last year, I started and stopped many times because I don’t have a flexibility even for a little bit.

I went to yoga and pilates classes but I never continued to attend them because I didn’t feel motivated.

Last year, when gyms are suspended due to Covid-19, I continued to do exercise at home and I started to research new workout routines and benefits of poses.

I read many articles about importance of stretching routine and I gave a try one more time. I started with Youtube videos. Some stretching videos have yoga elements and I adored it.

If you want to gain strength and flexibility, you should incorporate stretching into your workout program . I started to do stretching last year and I am really glad from the results.

Even if you do only 5 minutes after workout, you will see the results.

In today’s post, I would like to share the best poses that will help you to gain flexibility according to trainers.
