Are you looking to become more supple and perform better in your workouts? Perhaps you simply wish to feel a little looser when you get out of bed in the morning. Either way, stretching can help you achieve your aim. Here are some effective stretches you can perform that are sure to get you loose.

Calf Stretch

Stand facing a wall a little more than an arm’s length away. Put one foot forward with a bent knee and press your hands against the wall. Lean into the pose until you feel a stretch in the calf muscle of your back leg. Hold the position for at least 20 seconds.


Lie on your stomach. Place your hands flat on the floor directly under your shoulders. Extend your legs with your toes pointing out and breathe deeply as you lift your chest up while keeping your hips planted on the ground. Hold this position for 15 to 30 seconds.

Glute Bridge

Lie flat on your back. Bend your knees and lift your hips while keeping your feet flat on the ground. Tighten your glutes as you push your hips up toward the ceiling. Hold for a few seconds and repeat to stretch your glutes as well as your core.
