It is a great thing to start every day by including morning stretches in your daily routine. This will quickly wake your tired and sleepy muscles!
When you wake up, what is the first thing you do? Most of us stretch out our arms, legs, and core, to rid ourselves of the rigidity that has gathered overnight. This is due to the fact that we spend hours sleeping, so the body still wants to relax a bit in the morning.
In this post, we highlight a few easy morning stretches that are a great way to awaken and get your muscles ready for the day. These stretches can actually help you to manage your weight and prevent obesity.
1. Side-lying leg lift
For two reasons, the side-lift is one of the best workouts – it helps build strength within external thighs and hip abductions and helps relax the lower muscles in your body. On your bed, you can do this very easily.
2. Pilates Saw
When your body is very rigid and uncompromising, you can stretch your back and shoulders with the saw exercise. If the starting position is uncomfortable, try to sit on a block so you have higher bones than your heels, until your flexibility is developed.
3. Triangle pose
This twisting triangle pose extends the entire body. It helps to enhance your core muscles, which helps with balance. This position can decrease the rigidity in the spine and the back and lead to greater flexibility by stretching and lengthening the spine.
4. Butterfly pose
It may take time to do the butterfly pose, but there are many advantages. It can eliminate tiredness by releasing stress from your shoulders. This position also focuses on the hips and the neck, inner thighs, and knees. Ensure that you also move your chest forward to stretch out your chest.
5. Cobra to child’s pose
The cobra pose opens the shoulders and necks and thus improves the circulation of the blood. The flexibility of the upper and middle back can also be improved. Moving from the cobra posture to the child’s pose stretches the chest, abdominal muscles, thighs, and hip flexors. Hold this rapid stretch of a cobra to child to eliminate rigidity and pain.
