Post-Run Stretches You Can't Miss

A 10-minute post-run yoga sequence that will improve your range of motion and prevent injury

Most runners wouldn't describe themselves as limber or loose—especially after logging a five-, 10-, or 20-miler. But practicing yoga after your workouts can remedy that. By increasing blood and oxygen flow to muscles, tendons, and ligaments, yoga boosts flexibility, reduces soreness, and speeds recovery. This series of six poses targets runners' tightest and weakest spots, improving range of motion and strength to keep muscles and joints healthy. And as a bonus, you'll also develop balance, core strength, and focus. Done together, these exercises make the perfect post-run routine.
