An invigorating stretch from head to heels
When it comes to stretching your spine and the back of your legs, keep two things in mind: position and patience. This forward bend, using a block, will help relieve tightness in your lower back as well as stretch your calves and hamstring muscles. Remember: There's a direct relationship between flexibility and strength. The more range of motion your muscles have, the more strength and power they can generate.
