8-Minute Total Body Stretching Routine

In This Article

Wind down your workout with this eight-minute total body stretch session that can be done anywhere. Bonus: There’s no need to get down on the ground, so this routine is perfect for those with limited mobility.

We’ll use a single hand towel (you can also use a longer beach towel or yoga strap to make the stretches a bit easier) to stretch out tension and help relax the muscles in your upper back, shoulders, chest, biceps, triceps, hamstrings, glutes, quadriceps, calves, hips and more.
