Is there a full-body stretch to loosen most muscles at the same time?

Answer:

Yes. Try this one, which loosens your hip flexors, groin muscles, glutes, hamstrings, and even calves. 1) Step your left leg into a lunge position and then bend down, keeping your right knee off the floor. Place your right hand on the floor and your left elbow near the inside of your left foor. 2) Pause, turn to your left, and stretch your left arm upward. 3) Pause again. Now bring your left arm down and reach it beneath your torso and past your right arm. 4) Now break the lunge. Place your left hand outside your left foor, push your hips to the ceiling (like a sprint start), and lift your left toes toward your shin. Repeat it all with the other leg. Do 6 to 10 reps on each side prior to your workout.
