Stretching Explained: See the Exercises and Targeted Muscles

You probably found yourself doing an exercise that you don’t know which muscle it targets.

I mean, you feel that pressure or pain in the area, but you are not sure how to do it properly or what muscle is activated during the process.

The pictures I’ve found, and will share with you in a moment, have everything you need to know about the exercises.

There are 34 exercises complete with all the muscles they target.

You will finally understand the tightness in a certain area and of course, you will be able to target it right away.

This goes for those people who were kind enough to shoot me an email asking me whether it’s possible to target a certain area while stretching.

It is possible.

Please be advised that the muscle painted in red will feel the biggest impact. There are other (smaller group) muscles that will still feel pressure.

Stretching is really important. Especially for those who don’t have a job that requires a lot of movement.

I really want this to become your habit. You know how I love challenges, right?

Now, let me see how many of you will “sign up” for the challenge I’m about to set up.

There are 34 exercises. What I want you to do is to divide them in 5 days. Pick several muscles for every day and target them.

Keep the momentum going for 2 months.

Come back here and share with me whether you feel different or not.
