Stretch After Cardio With This Five-Minute Cooldown

Increase flexibility in your hamstrings and hip flexors with a simple Runner's Lunge:

  • From the Tipover Tuck position, come into a lunge position with the right foot forward and the left leg extended behind you, toes relaxed. Make sure there's enough distance between your feet so your front knee is at a 90-degree angle. Lower your hands to the floor to the left of your right foot.
  • Hold for five seconds, and bring the foot back into plank position. Repeat this movement on your right side.
  • Complete 10 reps on each leg, going back and forth. This active cooldown exercise should last for about one minute.
