Are you a runner who often hits the pavement without do much as doing a quick side stretch? If this is you, listen up! While running is great cardiovascular exercise, it's not so great for our joints. The repetitive single-plane motion of running can cause a lot of unnecessary wear and tear on our joints, ligaments, and already weak and tight hip flexor muscles.
This 15-minute good morning stretch is the perfect way to start the day. Pair it with a short meditation, a huge glass of water, (and coffee or tea), and you'll be unstoppable. All you need is a lacrosse or tennis ball, and a set of yoga blocks (optional if you have tight hamstrings).
