Four stretching exercises you can do while traveling

Stretching prepares the body before a strenuous activity. It improves

muscle flexibility. Not only does it avoid soreness after exercise, it can save you from injury. Stretching however, should not be limited prior to exercise alone. Stretching exercises can also relieve stress and muscle pain or simply to improve your posture. So wherever you are, you can do simple stretching to either ease muscle tension or liven up.

Neck stretching

Neck pain is one of the most commonly experienced issues. It can occur in whatever activity you involve yourself into. So it is absolute that you do not only stretch the neck but you should do so in the proper way. Simply, tilt your head to the right and assist with your right hand by placing it on your left ear. Hold the position for about ten counts and do the same to your left. Then bend your head forward and rest your chin on your chest. After ten counts, bend your head backwards until your face is parallel to the ceiling. You can do these steps about five times or until your neck is relieved.

Lower Back stretching

Aside from the neck, the lower back usually suffers from long hours of seating. While seated, separate your legs slight apart and bend forward until your fingertips reach the floor. Make sure to relax your head while doing so. This is also advised by mike geary and in no nonsense muscle building.

Upper Back Stretching

Move slightly away from the back rest of the chair and do the chest out position. Move your arms from both sides to the back of the chair until your elbows reach the top of the chair. Hold the position for 30 seconds.

Finger Stretching

Rest your elbows on the table while doing this stretching exercise. Place your hands in front of your face and spread your fingertips apart. Count 10 seconds then close your hands into a fist. You may repeat this until your fingers feel much more relaxed.

You can always feel much better with these four stretching exercises that are simple enough to do wherever and whenever you feel the need to.
