World’s Greatest Stretch

by on February 17th, 2014

So I’ve been in lots of gyms and done a lot of stretches and even though this article from Equinox claims that every personal trainer in the world knows and swears by this stretch, it’s the first I’ve ever heard of, The World’s Greatest Stretch. But that’s not going to keep me from trying it out. It’s supposed to cover every major muscle group in the body and you’ll be able to complete the entire thing in under 5 minutes. Sounds promising so far!

Here are the steps to the stretch. Hold each one for about 15-20 seconds and go through all the steps twice, switching left from right. You can get the full instructions from the link above to the original article on Equinox. All these photos are from the article. P.S. Isn’t this trainer in the photos beautiful? I totally want her hair!
