How to Use a Stretching Rope

The Healthiest Way to Justify TV Time

Before you feel completely guilty for rewatching the entire series of Breaking Bad, we have the tool to justify it: a basic rope. While you don't need to be a Boy Scout, this stretching tool is the next best thing you can give your body since that gym membership. How? Why? For starters, stretching is an integral part of any fitness routine to prevent injury and keep your muscles limber. Similar to a yoga strap, a rope makes for a convenient and inexpensive fitness aid that can be used anywhere.

While it's easy to pack in your gym bag, we recommend keeping it beside your couch as a reminder to take advantage of those commercial breaks. Use it to help ease the stretch in your shoulders with this pose and to assist with hamstring stretches for your next run. Try knotting the ends of a thick piece of rope (available at any hardware store) or the colorful Finis Fraid Nots Stretching Program ($20). Either way, you'll give your body a deeper and more effective stretch, no matter time or place!
