Classical Stretch: Back Pain Relief and Prevention

I bought Back Pain Relief and Prevention over a year ago--just in case, hoping I would never need this workout but knowing I would eventually.

AngieFitnessTV: Deep Foam Roller Stretch

This Deep Stretch Foam Roller Workout is subtitled Unwind-Breathe-Relax. I rarely use my foam roller but today I pulled it out for this workout.

The dynamic stretching … Continue reading AngieFitnessTV: Deep Foam Roller Stretch

AngieFitnessTV: Fit Over 40 Stretch & Unwind

Stretch & Unwind is Day 12 in AngieFitnessTV's Fit Over 40 program. This is a very relaxing stretch workout.

AngieFitnessTV: Stretch and Release

Stretch and Release is part of AngieFitnessTV's 15 Minutes to Fit Series. Most of the 15 Minutes to Fit workouts are longer than 15 minutes because they were designed as finishers to add onto the end of another workout, so she includes a 2-3 minute stretch at the end of the workouts. This one actually … Continue reading AngieFitnessTV: Stretch and Release
