-5 minutes of seated stretch in the splits. Start by stretching each individual leg, taking your chest toward the knee. Stay low while you travel across to the other leg. Once you hit each side, stretch in front of you, keeping your toes up to the ceiling. Pick a spot in front of you and touch it, then set your sights on a farther spot.
