Stretching regularly is very beneficial for your body. Stretching can increase your flexibility, improve your posture, reduce stress and body aches, and also allow muscles to recover quicker after exercise. Stretching can also delay the reduced mobility that can come with ageing.
Using resistance bands (particularly the type shown below) are very effective because they not only allow you to deepen your stretch and increase your flexibility, they also allow you to explore different types of stretching exercises.

These multifunctional bands are great to use for warming up before exercise, improving flexibility, toning and strengthening muscles, preventing injuries, as well as many other benefits. These bands come in different sizes, with loops to hold your hands and feet for extra support. Perfect for both beginners and professionals.
This is something that can be done at home, so ideal for home workouts during lockdown.
