Stretching After a Workout Feels Good — Do You Like to Stretch?

Do You Enjoy Stretching?

It could be my dancing background, or my love of yoga, but stretching is the icing on the cake of a great workout (I badly mixed a dessert metaphor with exercise, but sometimes I exercise with cake on the brain). After sweaty strength-training sessions, my Equinox trainer Lauren stretches me out, making me feel like an important athlete. Lauren helps me lengthen my hip flexors, hamstrings, quads, inner thighs, and glutes (this is my fave). She even sticks her knee in between my shoulder blades and pulls my elbows back to stretch my chest. It feels great. I stretch on my own after cardio, too. Do you share my love of stretching?
