Stretch & Flex

What is Stretch & Flex?

This program provides staff with a structured way to warm up and stretch at the beginning of the work shift.  Exercising before starting work prepares the body for the physical demands of daily tasks. 

Videos of Exercises

  • Warm up - Warm up exercises move all of the major joints in the body to activate muscles and prepare for activity. Do them slowly and with control. 
  • Stretches - These stretches target all the major muscle groups in the body.  When you stretch, be gentle so that you feel a sensation that is easy to tolerate and not pain.  Hold each stretch for 20-30 seconds, without bouncing, to reduce muscle tension.
