For those like me who have balance/mobility issues: On the first stretch, use a stool or chair to support your leg, rather than trying to grab your foot (I never could, even when skinny) and hold on to a chair, table, or wall for balance. For the second, hold on to a chair, table, or wall and only bend forward as far as you're comfortable. Same for the last stretch. If you do these stretches a few times a week, gradually your balance and flexibility will improve -- that's my target! Report
Worth full streaches Report
Good one! Report
Everything in moderation. Some of the exercises are good for me and some I won't be able to do because of former back surgery. Will be looking at other options for those exercises. This website is just to rich in resources. Report
luv this video. will do this every day! Report
Not a good workout for someone like me who is extremely obese, has a leg injury, and balance problems. You do have to be in good shape to do this. I was not able to do any of these exercises, unfortunately. Report
Great short stretching routine! I will try to incorporate these stretches into my everyday routine. Thanks SparkPeople. Report
I really like the stretches i think the will work great for a beginner like me Report
This is something I can do. I added it to my favorites so I can do it every day. Report
This felt great! I am SO inflexible right now and my belly gets in the way of my forward bends, but I can really feel my hams and calves loosening up a little. Report
Good morning stretch for that lower body. Been sitting and back and legs feel tight. Think I will do it again, only 5 minutes. Report
REMINDER never extend the knees over the toes as it puts too much stress on the knees. Report
ery true...I think some of these videos and moves are not for overweight/obese people. While I improved greatly over the past 8 weeks, it's still very challenging to do different execrises! Report
Not great stretches for those of us who are really overweight. These require a lot of balance. Holding on affects how you stand. These are fine stretches for those who are in good shape already, but not for those of us who are not. Report
This is definitely one of my go-to videos!! Report
