Monday Move: Carry Your Weight With Stretching!…and 4 Easy Items to Print

Posted By Darrell Smith, Monday, July 18, 2016

It is well known that injury occurs most often when muscles are not properly stretched, or when the wrong muscle is used to lift a load. Strain occurs when lifting or moving an object improperly, most often in the Back, Wrist, Shoulder, and Neck. It can also occur when you try to move in a way that exceeds your muscle’s range of motion.

Learn to Carry your Weight With Stretching using these simple activities. Four items are a "catch-all" to help prepare your muscles for strength instead of stiffness, and balance in your body on both right and left sides.

Instructions: Copy and Paste these stretches and make 10 copies. Deliver to the break room on your site or at your office so people can use them!  

PERFORM 30 SECONDS PER SIDE FOR ALL STRETCHES, AND BREATHE INTO THEM. YOU WILL FEEL ALERT, ALIVE, AND STRONG WHEN YOU ARE DONE WITH 5 MINUTES OF STRETCHING.
