Stretching Exercises (7 of 13)

Side Stretch
  1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.
  2. Place your right hand behind your back and your left arm overhead.
  3. Reach up with your left hand and lean to the right.
  4. Hold the stretch 10 to 15 seconds.
  5. Repeat on the other side.
Stretching makes your muscles and joints flexible, preventing injuries, and stopping your muscles from cramping. Flexibility also allows you to move your muscles through their full range of motion. That helps you jump higher, reach further, and run faster.
