Sit on the edge of the chair and lean forward and grab hold of your left foot with your righ hand. Without arching your back, bring your belly towards your thighs. You should feel the tension on the back of your left leg. Keep the stretch for about 10 seconds and repeat a couple of times before switching leg.
Exercise: Neck stretchers
Situation: At the office
Do your neck feel stiff after having spent too long in front of the computer? Do some neck stretches and you will feel better.
Sit up straight and grab hold of the edge of the seat with one hand. Gently pull your head to the side with the other as you push your head and neck towards the hand. Hold the stretch for about 10 seconds and do a couple of reps for each side. You can do this stretch both to the sides, diagonal and pulling your head forward to stretch the back of the neck.
If you have been working in front of the computer for a while this a good little stretch exercise to get your wrists, fingers and lower arms back in the game.
Grab hold of the fingers of your left hand with your right hand. Straighten your arm with the fingers facing down. Hold for 8-10 seconds. Switch! Repeat a few times on each side.
