Do You Stretch in Public?

I am a busy woman with tight legs and have found waiting for the elevator is a great time to stretch my calves. I have been known to stretch my quads on the subway platform, and my back at the airport.

I stretch all the time. Who cares if others are looking, I'm more flexible than most of them!

I stretch all the time, especially if I'm at work and have been standing in the same position for hours. I'll stretch my back/arms and my legs. Hey, it feels great, I'm not ashamed of other people seeing me stretch out.

I do whenever I feel the need. My back constantly needs stretched, (big boobs) If I don't I get migraines from the stress.

Standing on an escalator by your tippy toes is a good way to stretch your calves. I also subtley stretch my back on occasion but that's it.

I stretch all the time at work. Especially when I go to the bathroom, I'll do some leg stretches while I have the privacy.

I stretch anywhere if I feel the need to. I keep a sheet of stretches hanging in my cubicle at work so that when I feel myself stiffening up, I can get up and do a few stretches that target the usual office stiffness. I sometimes feel wierd if somebody walks by and I'm laying on a blanket with my knees to my chest - butfigure my back is more important than my pride!

I am a constant, unashamed stretcher! I love the way it feels, and my boyfriend always tells me how sexy he thinks I look when I stretch. Plus, when I had physical therapy, they were surprised at how flexible I am. (I just don't have muscle strength.)

My calves are usually so tight, especially when I'm out walking/shopping for a couple hours. I stop to look at a shirt in front of the mirror and put my foot against the wall and stretch.

I agree with glowing. I will do subtle stretching.

I often stretch my neck and back on the train. People do look at me a bit funny, but, who cares.

Yes, subtly. Sometimes I would bend at the waist to pretend to adjust my shoes, but I'm really trying to stretch my lower back. It feels good.
