16 Post-Workout Static Stretches

If you want to stay injury-free, the best remedy is simple: Stretch. But common excuses like, "I don't have time to stretch" or "I'll stretch later" prevent many from partaking in a proper cool-down. In reality, you only need 5 to 10 minutes to give your muscles some TLC.

Regular stretching helps improve flexibility, increases range of motion and reduces the risk of injury caused by lesions of the connective tissue. Plus, stretching is even great for stress relief. So after your next workout, take a few minutes to rid the lactic acid and stretch.

Try these 16 static stretches that will keep your body healthy and performing strong.
