Exercises to Cooldown After Workout

Stretch After Cardio With This Five-Minute Cooldown

Stretch After Cardio With This Five-Minute Cooldown

You might want to hop off that treadmill, bike, or elliptical as soon as you finish a tough workout, but those few minutes of lower-intensity exercise that immediately follow are essential. Without that cooldown on the machine, plus additional time stretching, muscles tend to tighten over time, heightening the risk of an injury.

This quick five-minute stretching sequence targets your legs, back, hips, and shoulders to keep those muscles flexible, healthy, and ready to take on your next workout. Just be sure to hydrate after you move through this cooldown sequence!
