November 14: Stretch

Flexibility is key to maintaining mobility and preventing injury. This week, says Bruce Krahn, "do three 10-minute stretching sessions that work all your major muscles, ideally after a cardio workout when your muscles are warm." Try our quick routine for ideas and don’t forget to breathe.

Prone to overuse injuries or tightness in specific areas? It's worth investing in some one-on-one time with a personal trainer, yoga teacher or other specialist so they can create a routine for your specific needs.

• 5 stretches you need to try
• What really happens when you stretch your muscles?
• How to be more flexible
