Shoulders roll

Stand straight, keep feet hip-width apart and arms by your side.
Roll your shoulders up, back and down. As you start, your thumbs should be pointing forward. Tilt palms forward, slightly, as you complete each shoulder roll.
Now reverse the movement so that your shoulders move forward, down, back and up. Repeat several times.

Extended angle side band

Begin by standing with your feet wide apart and your legs straight. Extend your arms at chest level, palms facing front.
Bend your right knee slowly, lowering yourself to the right, making sure your feet are wide enough so that your knee does not extend past your toes.
At the same time, tilt your entire body to the right by stretching your spine and spreading your arms.
Lower as far as you can, maintaining abs taut, bottom tucked under and hips square in front.
Raise your right hand to the floor and your left hand to the ceiling.
Stay for at least 15-30 seconds. The right hamstring, left inner thigh, left groyne, chest, and front of the shoulders should all feel stretched.
Repeat the procedure slowly on the left side.

Standing hamstring stretch

Stand with your feet slightly wider than your shoulders.
With your left foot, take a step forward. Flex your left leg towards you.
Place your hands on your left thigh and lean forward at the hips. Keep your left leg straight while bending your right knee slightly.
Feel for a stretch in your left hamstring.
Hold for 30-60 seconds before switching sides.
